Zoo trainers in China have found the endangered red panda is relatively easy to train, and hope to raise the animal's profile with performances.

Historically these red pandas have lived in the shadow of their famous black and white cousins.

But zoo trainers in southeastern China aim to change this by teaching these animals to put on a show.

The discovery came after trainers wanted to teach the pandas simple orders that would make health checkups more manageable.

After just a month the animals mastered these commands.
