Fun Facts about Pandas!

  • These magnificent mammals are omnivores. Bamboo counts for 99 percent of their diet.
  • Pandas are BIG eaters – every day they fill their tummies for up to 12 hours.
  • Scientists aren’t sure how long pandas live in the wild, but in captivity, they live to be around 30 years old.
  • Baby pandas are born pink and measure about 15cm – that’s about the size of a pencil!
  • Female pandas give birth to one or two cubs every two years. Cubs stay with their mothers for 18 months before venturing off on their own!
  • Unlike most other bears, pandas do not hibernate.
