Children's Book About Pandas

The giant panda is a specific species of bear that lives in the wild only in the forest in certain mountain ranges found in China. In that country, the panda is the symbol of peace. Pandas are black and white and look different from every other species of bear. The fur on their ears, nose, legs, shoulders, and around the eyes is black while the rest of the body is covered with white fur. These unique markings make them difficult to spot in the jungle where they live.

The male panda is also called a boar and can weigh as much as 250 pounds. The female panda, or sow, weighs up to 230 pounds making it very similar in size to the male. These animals are usually two to three feet tall and five to six feet long. Most of them will live to be 15 to 20 years old.

Giant Panda Cub PlayingThese animals are very good at climbing trees. They also swim fast to escape predators. When they eat, they hold onto their food with a large wrist bone that they use like it is a thumb.

Their favorite food is bamboo. They have very strong jaws and large molars to help them eat. The average panda will consume between 25 and 40 pounds of bamboo per day. If they cannot find enough bamboo, they will eat grass, honey, green corn, vines, flowers, and even small rodents.

The panda usually prefers to live alone. Sometimes they will socialize with other pandas usually through scent and vocalizing. They do not live in permanent homes. Instead, they sleep under rock ledges and stumps at the bottom of trees.Group of Giant Panda Bears

The giant panda is different from other bear species because it does not hibernate during the weather. During the winter months, it will travel to low elevations to stay warm. It then moves to high elevations during the summer where the weather is cooler.

Panda cubs are only about six inches long when they are born in the late summer. They remain blind for the first two months of their lives and only start to move around when they are three months old. They have no fur when first born but will be covered with it by the time they reach three months of age. They weigh less than half a pound and will drink only their mother’s milk for the first six months.

The Size of a Giant PandaThe baby panda will learn to climb trees when it is seven months old. While it is growing up, the cub is usually very clumsy and will fall, roll over, and trip while exploring the world. It will stay with its mother for as long as three years before they leave to live on their own. When the cub is very young, the mama panda will hold it in her arms similar to how a human mom cradles her baby.

Pandas are an endangered animal species. They are in danger because they are losing their natural habitats. This happens because farmers are cutting down the bamboo forests to make room to grow crops.

    I enjoyed reading this page and watching the videos. I can say that pandas are among the cutest bears that ever lived in the planet. They have nice color patterns and they are cuddly. What’s bothering me is the fact that they are now endangered. I don’t want the time where panda bears are considered extinct. How would our young ones see the beauty of this bears? So, I suggest that the government must handle these species accordingly.

    Most of Giant Pandas live in a mountain ranges in central China, in Sichuan, Shaanxi, and Gansu provinces. They once lived in lowland areas, but farming, forest clearing, and other development now restrict giant pandas to the mountains. The Giant Panda is an endangered species and highly threatened.hough giant pandas are often assumed docile, they have been known to attack humans, presumably out of irritation rather than predatory behavior.

      Giant pandas are also solitary. They have a highly developed sense of smell that males use to avoid each other and to find females for mating in the spring.

    Pandas are really beautiful and they are gentle by their nature. We should protect and continue to save them from those people who hunt them. As far as I know, they will never attack people unless when triggered and harm is incurred. They are playful and friendly. Kids must read this video book to know more about panda bears and for them to know how to help save them from their extinction.
