INTERESTING FACTS ABOUT PANDAS
The image of beautiful black and white bears comes to mind when we think of giant pandas. They are fascinating and have an enormous fan base everywhere. But how knowledgeable are you about pandas? I think we all know for a fact that they are the cutest animals in the world. Here is a list of facts you probably did not know about a panda bear:
1. A panda year is equivalent to three human years
In terms of lifespan, a panda year is comparable to an approximate of three human years. Giant pandas can live up to 25 or 30 years in confinement and 18 to 20 years in their natural habitat. Xinxing (also known as “New Star”), a giant panda in the Chongqing Zoo, lived to be 38 years and 4 months old (1982–2020). That is the same as 115 years in a human life.
2. Pandas have six fingers
The sixth “finger” of a panda resembles a human being's thumb. In reality, it is an uncommon wrist cartilage or opposable paw heel with powerful muscles but no joints that move. The extra finger serves the same purpose as a thumb and can grasp food.
For effective eating, they are able to manipulate the bamboo tree into the shape of large cigars using their sixth finger.
3. Pandas will abandon a child if she has twins
While pandas in confinement tend to be more likely to bear twins. Wild pandas typically only have one cub. If a female panda has two cubs in the wilderness, she is going to nourish the one she perceives as being stronger. The other is left on its own to handle things.
The newly born baby panda is very fragile, which is why this is the case. At about 12 months of age, cubs start to consume bamboo. However up until that point, they are entirely reliant on their mother. Therefore, in the wild, the mother panda lack the supply of milk and energy needed to provide care for two cubs.
As soon as a cub reaches the age roughly a year and a half, it remains with its mom up until she becomes pregnant another time. The cub will continue to live with its mother till it is a little over two years old, barring pregnancy.
4. Pandas are loners
The giant panda lives alone. They've established their own space in the wild, and they defend it from other pandas. This is because giant pandas eat bamboo, which eliminates the need for cooperative hunting. To satisfy their nutritional requirements, they must consume a great deal of bamboo.
Disputes over access to sufficient bamboo would prevent giant pandas from coexisting peacefully in groups. Which would be detrimental to their overall well-being. A panda typically requires its own bamboo forest, which is 3–8 square kilometers in size, for its survival.
5. They are not endangered species anymore
Their total number has increased to over 2,200 as a result of conservation efforts to preserve giant pandas. There are now 1,864 giant pandas living in the wild and 422 of them were born in captivity. This has changed their threat level from “endangered” to “vulnerable”.
6. Pandas do not hibernate
Because of their bamboo-based dietary habits, giant pandas cannot store sufficient fat to hibernate throughout winter. Cold weather is not a fear for pandas. They can be seen strolling through bamboo forests covered in heavy snow despite temperatures as low as -4°C.
7. Panda cubs are pink
A panda cub is born weighing only 100 grams. They are pink, blind, and bald. Shortly after around three weeks, their trademark coat of black and white develops.
8. Their coat is a good camouflage
Pandas must dedicate the majority of their time in their habitats, which are primarily forests and snowy hills. These places are great when searching for bamboo to consume. They are able to prevent unwanted attention thanks to their black and white color. Pandas are capable of blending into the shadows of the forest thanks to their black coat. And white coats allow them to conceal themselves in the a blanket of snow
9. Pandas used to eat meat
Pandas were not required to be as quick when large predators like tigers weren't around. So they evolved into eating bamboo to prevent going extinct themselves. Although we may only be familiar with them as bamboo eaters, they can also consume meat and enjoy some fruit.
10. They can poop 28 kilos per day
Although bamboo makes up 99% of a panda's diet, its digestive system still has carnivorous traits. Less than 20% of giant pandas can digest bamboo, and the plant itself contains few nutrients. Pandas must therefore consume plenty of bamboo for them to maintain their energy, which causes them to poop a lot.
WHY PANDAS ARE BELOVED ANIMALS?
It is no surprise to us that children – younger or even older kids love pandas. For a variety of reasons, kids adore pandas. First of all, with their white and black circle markings, round faces, and fluffy bodies, pandas are unbelievably cute. And not to mention cuddly.
Pandas are the epitome of soft, fuzzy, and adorable — things that undoubtedly pique children's interest. Pandas are also frequently portrayed in children's books, cartoons, and movies, which promotes their popularity with young viewers.
Like, Kung Fu Panda for example. Even adults love that movie! Furthermore, children's imaginations are drawn in by pandas, which are fascinating creatures. They are distinctive and captivating to learn about because they are one of the few bear creatures that are herbivorous.
In addition to having unique habits that set them apart from other animals, they also have a fondness for bamboo and a knack for protracted sleep. Pandas offer an ideal way for children to discover more about the animal kingdom.
