When it comes to Pandas, what do you think of first? Black and white, cuddly teddy bear looking and with Kung-Fu Skills? You may be right on some of those, obviously the Kung-Fu Skills bit! We’ve all seen the movie, right?
For the uninitiated, here are some Panda facts you may not be aware of:
- Pandas are born hairless, pink and blind. The black and white fur arrives after about three weeks. Some giant pandas are actually brown and white but these varieties are rare.
- Pandas are actually very ‘lazy’ creatures. All they really do all day is eat and sleep.
- The reason that pandas are endangered is that the female pandas are only really fertile for one day a year – eating and drinking is high on their list of favorite activities – so conceiving is a secondary concern.
- An adult panda spends 14 hours a day eating and can consume up to 38 kilos of bamboo during that time.
- All that eating has to come out some way. Pandas can poop as much as 28 kilos a day. (if they are sitting in a tree, watch out below!)
- Pandas have carnivorous teeth but eat only bamboo and some fruits.
- Pandas are the actual logo of the WWF -World Wildlife fund for Nature (Not the wrestling federation, Pandas are far too lazy to be wrestlers.)
- The reason why so many millions of people love pandas is because they look so cute and cuddly
Our love of pandas knows no bounds...

Probably the most famous set of movies about a panda, aside from the many critically acclaimed nature documentaries, would be the ‘Kung-Fu Panda’ series of movies. This trilogy of movies brought a whole new generation of young moviegoers to start their fascination and love for pandas into the twenty-first century.
