Panda bears dressed in white and black fit right into their snowy and rocky habitat.
The Bamboo Bear spends up to fourteen hours per day eating over eighty pounds of his favorite dish -- you guessed it -- bamboo! He even has a special 'pseudothumb' which he uses to handle bamboo stems. This bear is usually five feet tall and weighs three hundred pounds. In the wild, pandas live to be around twenty years old; but, in captivity, they may be able to live a decade more. Generally living on their own, pandas remain with their mother for the first year or two of their lives before establishing their own territory. Due to their endangered conservation status, pandas from China were loaned to zoos in America late in the twentieth century, aptly named 'Panda Diplomacy.'
Fun Facts: Although labeled a carnivore, this bear is a vegetarian.
