Giant pandas have special front paws. Both paws have five fingers plus a thumb
Though giant pandas are bears they do not hibernate like other bears. This is because their main food supply is available all year around.
A giant panda cub weighs only around 5 ounces at birth, but an adult can weigh 250 pounds!
A giant panda needs to consume a comparatively large amount of food—from 20 to 40 pounds of bamboo each day—to get all its nutrients. To obtain this much food means that a panda must spend 10 to 16 hours a day foraging and eating. The rest of its time is spent mostly sleeping and resting.
