Me old bamboo, me old bamboo

Apparently the Giant Panda population in the wild may have been underestimated. Combing through panda poo has revealed more DNA samples than expected. In one reserve where they thought they only had 27 of the piebald bamboo-chompers, they found DNA from 66.

So that's good news, although of course, they are still very much an endangered species.
