And if it doesn't move like a predator, they don't care either," creator Nico Nijenuis of Clear Flight Solutions told Wired magazine.

    A rare, and undeniably adorable, red panda has been born in Tennessee. The species has a high infant mortality rate so caretakers took "a hands-off approach" - supervising the cub through hidden cameras in the animal's den at the Nashville Zoo.

    "The mother has done a great job of nursing and caring for the baby," said Zoo supervisor Karen Rice.

Endangered red pandas are part of the Species Survival Program from the Association of Zoos and Aquariums. Known for their appealing "teddy bear-like appearance" the furry mammals are native to the mountains of Central China, Nepal and northern Myanmar (Burma) where their habitat is in severe jeopardy. "Red panda mothers are very prone to stress and easily agitated, which could cause them to reject or unintentionally harm the cubs," added Karen Rice.
