Zoo sets up CCTV for shy Jia Jia in River Safari panda exhibit

FOR the past six months, visitors to the River Safari's panda exhibit have not seen much of one half of its cuddly duo.

Shy four-year-old Jia Jia has been retreating into her den so often that a closed-circuit television camera (CCTV) has been installed inside it.

Visitors can now watch her through a live feed on a screen next to her enclosure, which is linked to her 15 sq m den.

"(Male panda) Kai Kai is more outgoing and visitors can see his different antics, from chewing on his bamboo to taking a nap, in visible locations in his exhibit," said River Safari assistant director of zoology Ang Cheng Chye.
