Red Panda Jang is back safe and sound in his enclosure at Duisburg Zoo in Germany. Since yesterday morning, the zoo grounds have been searched with binoculars and thermal imaging cameras. Jang was found in a treetop not far from the panda enclosure.

Red Pandas are considered “escape experts”. According to the zoo, Jang may have used a plant to help him climb.
