On November 17, 2023, the Oji Zoo in Kobe held a tail inspection for its red pandas. The zoo’s veterinarians and keepers examined the red pandas’ tails for any signs of injury or disease. The red pandas were all cooperative and seemed to enjoy the attention.
Tail inspections are an important part of red panda care. Red pandas’ tails can be injured or become infected, and regular inspections can help to prevent these problems. The zoo’s veterinarians and keepers are trained to identify signs of tail problems and to provide treatment if necessary.
