Panda..

Look how cute panda can be. No wonders the movie Kung Fu Panda uses Panda as its main character. Because for sure children will love it.
Here some facts about Panda:
  • Pandas live in and around mountainous slopes and exist on a diet largely comprised of bamboo shoots. They eat most of the day to consume the food they need for survival
  • The Giant Panda is white and black. An adult can grow to 3 1/2 to five feet and weigh up to 350 pounds.


  • The giant panda is listed as endangered in the World Conservation Union's (IUCN's) Red List of Threatened Animals. It is one of the most critically endangered species in the world. There are about 1,000 left in the wild.
  • Adult giant pandas are generally solitary, but they do communicate periodically through scent marks, calls, and occasional meetings.
  • Offspring stay with their mothers from one and a half to three years.

I love Pandas. I hope one day I am able to see one. So sad that they are endangered because they are soooo adorable.
