Panda Bear
( Ailuropoda melanoleuca )

Panda Bear - Panda Bear information - Panda Bear facts



As everybody knows Panda bear has got a black and white fur, while black colour is on its eyes, ears, shoulders and legs. It measures from 3.9 till 4.9 feet in length with a tail of 5 inches. It weighs 75-160 kg. Panda bears can be found in Tibet and in western China.
Ailuropoda melanoleuca has strong jaws with extremely powerful jaw muscles and large skull. Panda’s forefeet are pretty unique too, as they have pads at the base of the first and the second digit. Pandas have very strong front feet with claws, which enable them to climb trees quite easily and moreover they are good swimmers too, despite that they are very clumsy on the ground.
The Panda bear is sexually mature at the age of 6. After the female panda gives birth to the young, she transports them by holding small pandas in her teeth. Panda’s diet consists mainly from bamboo shoots, rodents occasionally small mammals such as fish or birds. Although this mammal is able to climb trees, it spends most of its time on the ground feeding itself approximately 10 hours each day. An adult Panda can eat up to 20 kg of bamboo each day.
The Panda bear is one of the most endangered species in the world. Humans tend to destroy its original habitat and consequently their access to main food (bamboo) is rapidly decreased.
