Giant Panda

Olivia Scheibmeir & TaiAnna Curtis -7th period

The Giant Panda is what you would think it looks like, black and white and big. The giant Panda lives in mountain ranges and is also in forests in china. They are on the continent of Asia. The Giant panda doesn't eat a variety of food. They eat the die-backs of bamboo. The reason why this species is endangered is because when they cleared the forest in china that's where most of the population. So not a lot of them survived and all that's left are small populations. Because of this, the Great Panda has only 300 of their species left. IUCN classifies that the Great Panda is just endangered. They are trying to save the panda's by having 60 panda reserves.


+ Pandas eat in a relaxed position, with their hind legs stretched out in front of them.

+They may climb as high as 13,000 feet to feed on higher slopes in the summer season.

+It takes 28 pounds of bamboo to satisfy a giant panda's daily dietary needs.
