Unique Panda Facts

The panda is native to the mountainous regions of southwestern and central-western China. Pandas have a unique look with a short tail, large black patches covering their body (primarily around the eyes and over the ears), and have a paw with five fingers and a thumb. For their diet, they survive mainly on bamboo stalks.  Male pandas can weigh up to 253 pounds, with females weighing up to 220 pounds.

An Endangered Species

The female panda typically gives birth to one or two cubs. Since the cubs need the mother’s undivided attention, she is only able to care for one at a time, resulting in one dying soon after birth when two are born.  The cubs live with their mother for two years.  While endangered, it is reported that the number of wild pandas are on the rise mainly because of improved conservation methods, laws protecting them, and the establishment of panda reserves in China. The panda is on the IUCN Red List of Threatened Species.
