Panda live only in the remote mountainous areas of central China. There they find the bamboo they feed on. This animal typically eats 12 hours a day, this averages 28 pounds of bamboo, per Panda, per day. Although the Panda is know for eating bamboo, what many people don’t know is that this animal is an Omnivore and will eat birds or rodents as well.
Female Pandas give birth after 5 months, to one or two cubs, although she will only care for one cub. These cubs are born all white and develop the familiar Panda coloring later. The average life span of the Panda in the wild, of which there are approximately only 1000 left, is 20 years, with the average weight being approximately 300 pounds.
Most of what is known about the Panda comes from studying the Pandas in the zoo because their wild relatives are just too scarce.
