Giant Panda Day Quiz

March 16th is the National Giant Panda Bear Day in the U.S.

We all now the Giant Panda is on the list of endagered species, comes from China and was chosen to be the WWF’s logo.

While this animal is supposed to be carnivorous/omnivorous, its diet consists almost entirely of bamboo. This plant, however, gives little energy to these huge creatures.

They spend several hours a day eating bamboo, and limit their movements to save as much energy as they can. This peculiar eating habit made pandas very lazy!

We can tell the vulnerability of this species isn’t only due to human action, as the behavior of the panda itself plays an important role in making it weaker.
