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.
These 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.
