Witness above rarely seen footage of the intrepid panda-cuddler, A.M. This photo was taken on one of her early expeditions in search of the elusive miniature panda. She is pictured with her trusty assistant and fellow panda wrangler (note his rugged vest and his knit cap to keep warm during those long hours waiting for the miniature panda to emerge from its lair). As you can see, even then she demonstrated a clear knowledge and aptitude for handling the panda; keeping it close to her while supporting it from the bottom.

She continues her successful career with the descendants of that first miniature panda. Her work has come into focus again because of the increased desire to cuddle pandas due to the birth of the baby panda at the National Zoo.
