This morning I visited an old friend of mine who’s a kindergarten teacher. She’s great with kids. Today the little fellows were learning about the Panda Bear. So I thought it would be good if I would write about the Panda Bear and post a few photos, in case somebody wants to know more about these wonderful creatures.
While some people tend to believe the Panda Bear is some kind of a raccoon, scientists have agreed that this mammal (a mammal is an animal who gives birth to live babies and feeds them with milk produced by the sweat glands -breasts or nipples) looks more like a bear.
Unfortunately, Pandas are very rare and due to this fact it is forbidden to hunt them (thank God!). These bears live mostly in cold regions, such as coniferous forest (which are found at a high altitude) and the main source of food is, as all of us already know, bamboo.
Panda Bears live in Tibet and China. Due to the fact they are so rare the Chinese government established 14 reserves for the protection of this endangered specie.
The Panda Bear is easy to recognize. They look goofy, cute and clumsy. Their basic color is white with black eye patches, black spots on their back, legs and chest and they usually have a tiny black tail. They grow up to 180 cm (about 6 feet) and get to weigh about 90 kg (about 200 pounds). These bears are very flexible and they spend about 10-12 hours eating every day and due to their diet they don’t hibernate during winter time.
