Bigfoot has long been an object of fascination.
But new research suggests that the creature may not have been the last known animal to vanish in North America.
Researchers say they found no trace of the panda in an area that is home to the largest population of the endangered animal in the world, which has been found in South America.
The team of researchers used satellite data and satellite imagery to find the giant pandas habitat, called Bora Bora National Park, on the Indonesian island of Borneo.
They also found evidence of giant pandases in the area in the form of small animals.
But they found the giant Panda in a place that was not the last place where the species disappeared, said lead researcher David J. Brown, an assistant professor at the University of Colorado Boulder.
“We’re not going to be able to tell the species is dead,” Brown said.
“It may be gone and the population may not be there, or it may have been moved, or there may be some new animals.”
The researchers say that while the giant panthers are not currently endangered, they are in the middle of a population decline.
And while the pandas are no longer living in Bora, they do not yet have a stable population.
“They’ve been living here for many years, and this population is declining,” Brown told ABC News.
“So we need to be careful.”
According to the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, there are more than 30 species of panda that are found in North and South America, with the largest being the pangolin.
