Question from a Wildlife Nutritionist: We have three female red pandas housed together. Recently two of them have lost weight. I have increased the caloric intake for the two and the vets have given them a clean bill of health. When I talked with their keepers it was mentioned that the older panda had recently experienced an increase in aggression towards the other two.
Sometimes, seemingly small changes can make a big difference. New enhancements to ZIMS -- such as dropdown menus that make it easier to record enrichment items for an animal -- are designed to save time for the animal care and record keeping teams at our more than 1,200 Species360 member institutions.
