The panda has very strong paws that can grip well. They are very good climbers but their eyesight is very poor.
Diet and habitat:
Although it's classed as a flesh-eater it’s normal diet is bamboo and very occasionally bamboo rats and small birds. The panda spends two thirds of a day eating.
The panda’s adaptations are it’s molar teeth. It’s teeth are used for crushing bamboo.
Jaw dropping facts:
The panda has the largest molars of any carnivores. The giant panda spends 16 hours eating.
The mating is the only time they can breed. A mother panda can have two cubs at a time but if she does the second one is unlikely to survive.
