Giant Panda Eating
Bifengxia Panda Base, Ya’an, China
The China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda, located at Bifengxia Panda Base, is engaged in reproduction research. They have become very effective in raising baby pandas to adulthood, and within fifteen years they hope to be able to reintroduce the pandas back to the wild. Although the giant panda still has the digestive system of a carnivore, 99% of its diet is bamboo. A 300-pound bear can eat twenty to thirty pounds of bamboo a day, which means they do indeed defecate in the woods - up to forty times each day.
This is one of two photographs we have published from this research base that day. This panda is a mature adult. The other photograph, Giant Panda In Tree is of a two-year-old. For a little more information about that trip, check out “Red Panda” Added To Website.
