What is a Panda Bear?

The panda bear is a mammal that is the same size as a black bear.

What Colours are they?

The Pandas most basic colours are white with black eye patches, ears, legs, chest, feet and shoulders

The Panda Bears Habitat

Panda bears are located in 6 small areas in China. The habitat is suitable for growing bamboo and is usually cold, damp forest on a mountainside.

What does the Panda Eat?

Panda Bears eat Bamboo, leaves bugs and sometimes mice! Yuk!

How they look after their young 

Female Panda Bears nurse their young with their special milk.  

Baby cubs are born pink, grow white hair and then in a month they will be black and white like newspaper.  

They stop nursing when they are about 9 months old.

They are endangered because…

 People have been ripping down their habitat and bamboo to make way for farming. There are only about 1,000 panda left in the wild.

A zoo in China is helping by breeding lots of baby panda cubs.
