Giant Pandas

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


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


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


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


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


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