Giant Pandas

There are less than 1,600 giant pandas left in the wild making them one of the world's most threatened animals.

Legends

For centuries, the giant panda has been central to many Chinese legends and lore.


Habitat

Wild giant pandas usually live alone in cool and dense bamboo and coniferous forests on the mountains.

Diet

Kai Kai and Jia Jia spend 12 hours a day munching on bamboo which is very fibrous and difficult to digest.

Breeding

Giant pandas must be one of very few animals that need help in the art of mating.


Conservation

What we know about giant pandas today is largely attributed to the studies conducted in zoos worldwide.
