Pandas live in high in dense bamboo forests in the misty rainy mountains in Southwestern China.  Pandas also sometimes live in the Chinese Zoos with a big area to roam around in and with people that adore Pandas so much.  Pandas are originally from China. Pandas like to live in cool weather not hot or dry weather just cool climates.

Pandas eat bamboo as you all know, but they also enjoy honey, eggs, fish, fruit, and veggies like oranges, yams, and bananas.  They also eat leaves, stems, and shoots. The Giant Pandas eat up to 20-40 pounds of food a day then they poo 50 times a day because they eat so much food.

When baby Pandas are born they weigh three to five ounces like a stick of butter. They are pink in color, blind, hairless, cute, and harmless. Pandas are the smallest newborn mammals relative to their mother’s size. They stay with their mother until they are 2 years old then they can fend for themselves out in the forest.  

The reason Pandas are going extinct is that people are destroying the Panda’s habitat for development in China. There are only about 20 patches of forest in China left where the pandas can live. Pandas don’t have enough food to live in the forests. There are now only 1,114 Giant Pandas left alive in the world! Isn’t that horrible.

Pandas are going extinct.  Isn’t that sad? So many people adore pandas.  The world would be sad without pandas so we should come up with more ideas to help save the panda population.Like, give your loose change to Panda zoos because they also want to help save pandas.
