The panda bear, also known as the Giant Panda, is indigenous to Central China. They are mostly located in Sichuan, Shaanxi, and Gansu.
The giant panda has black and white fur. Pandas are technically omnivores. They eat grasses, wild tubers, and birds, such as rodents, birds, and carrions. However, a giant panda’s diet is over 99% bamboo.
Giant pandas are a very vulnerable species. The majority of them are living in captivity. The number of pandas living in the wild is unknown. Most estimates show about 1,500 pandas living. However, some estimates show as many as 2,000-3,000 pandas living freely in the wild. Fortunately, the number of pandas (overall) seems to be on the rise. Their population is up about 16.8% in 2016.
