A French playwright spent up to 10 hours a day in a cage for a week to better understand the life of the panda for a theater project he's working on.
Norbert Aboudarham, 57, spent his time in the cage in Paris' Amiens Zoo writing "The Panda's Flea."
He explained that his reason was "about the universe, you have to put yourself in a cage smaller than the universe."
He worked on his new play on his laptop inside the cage, which he inhabited alone. His neighbors included red pandas, wolves, and raccoons.
This is the third play Aboudarham has written about animals since 2002.
