Scientific name:for giant panda :Ailuropoda melanoleuca
Habitat:Giant pandas are an endangered species. A 2004 census found only about 1,600 wild giant pandas. They live in scattered populations in the mountains of central China, mostly in Sichuan Province, but also in Gansu and Shaanxi Provinces.
Food:A wild giant panda diet is almost exclusively 99 percent bamboo The balance consists of other grasses and occasional small rodents or musk deer fawns. In zoos, giant pandas eat bamboo, sugar cane, rice gruel, a special high-fiber biscuit, carrots, apples, and sweet potatoes.
Predators:Due to the large size and unique habitat of the giant panda, adults have no natural predators within their cool, bamboo-filled world.
Prey:while pandas are classified as carnivores they primarily forage for bamboo. However, they do eat small mammals, fishes, and rodents.
Biodiversity:Not too much an impact on human life as such. The key role Pandas play is in spreading bamboo forests; they eat a lot of bamboo and travel wide, ending up planting a lot of bamboo seeds resulting in widespread growth of bamboo forests. One could argue this can be easily done by Human Beings. Yes, very achievable, but doesn't mean we shouldn't do everything we can to stop Pandas from going away. Pandas bring economic benefits in the form of tourism to the Chinese.
Human Activity:People have shared the environment with the panda for centuries and have relied on the area's natural resources for their livelihood. As the population has grown, many human activities have become unsustainable and significantly eroded the panda's habitat
Fact:The giant panda, also known as panda bear or simply panda, is a bear native to south central China. It is easily recognized by the large, distinctive black patches around its eyes, over the ears, and across its round body.
