The giant panda has heavy shoulders, black and white fur, small and sharp black ears, and black patches around its eyes. Most of the body and belly is white. The male giant panda is slightly larger and heavier than the female. The giant panda has quite a large head and a large, muscular jaw. It is a rather large animal.
The giant panda’s diet is 99% bamboo. Sometimes, it eats other types of grasses, and occasionally small rodents, or musk deer fawns. At the zoo, giant pandas eat bamboo, sugar canes, rice gruel, a special high-fiber biscuit, carrots, apples, and sweet potatoes.
The giant panda primarily spends its life roaming and in the bamboo forests of the Qinling Mountains and in the hilly Sichuan Province. Each adult has its own defined territory. A female is not tolerant of other females in her range.
Overall, the giant panda is a very interesting and lazy animal that sleeps for most of the day.
