I can watch pandas all day long, they are so adorable! Giant pandas live in a few mountain ranges in central China provinces at elevations between 5,000 and 10,000 feet. They once lived in lowland areas, but farming, deforestation and industrialization made pandas move up to the mountains. Pandas are very adaptable. The giant panda has lived in bamboo forests for several million years. Giant panda is about the size of an American black bear, on all four legs it stands 2-3 feet tall, and is 4-6 feet long. Males are larger than females, weighing up to 250 pounds in the wild. The giant panda is listed as endangered species in the World Red List of Threatened Species. There are about 1,600 pandas left in the wild. The giant pandas have naturally slow breeding rate. In the wild the females can only have 5-8 cubs in lifetime. More than 300 pandas live in zoos and breeding centers around the world, mostly in China. All pandas do all day is eat and sleep. 99% of their diet is bamboo, they need 20-40 pounds of it each day to get all the needed nutrients. Pandas spend 10-16 hours a day chewing, the rest of the day they sleep.
