It’s National Panda Day. To celebrate the bears that mostly habitat Southwestern China, here are some interesting facts about them. Their scientific name is Ailuropoda melanoleuca.
Pandas live about 15-20 years in the wild. Their distinctive white and black color help them hide in snow and in the shade.
Pandas are slow movers. They rarely move faster than a pace of a walk and appear clumsy. However, they eat fast and are always eating. Up to 14 hours of their day is spent chowing down. They are classified as carnivores but their diet is closer to herbivores since their main source of food is bamboo.
Baby pandas are some of the smallest mammals. They weigh just 4 ounces at birth. Adult pandas can weigh between 165-353 lbs.
Pandas can climb as high as 13,000 feet and are also very good swimmers.
Pandas like to be by themselves. They are shy and usually keep to a two-mile radius during their life.
