Pandas By rachel

Pandas are a type of bear originating and existing only in China. Their source of diet depends mainly on bamboo (an Asian plant). 99 per cent of a pandas diet is made up from bamboo. A panda is quite easy to spot in the wild, a white bear with black markings. Although China is a rather large country, every day for the panda is a fight for life - as they are on the brink of extinction and one day will cease to exist.

Dai heong mao is the word in Cantonese for panda meaning big red cat.

Pandas can poo up to 40 times a day!

Like koalas and hippos , pandas eat the faeces of their mother.

Only over a few hundred or more are left in the wild; many are captivated or left in training.
