Pandas live in humid bamboo forests or forests with a mix of coniferous and deciduous trees, at altitudes of 1300 to 3600 meters. Both males and females live alone most of the year, and do not hibernate like bears do. Pandas sleep for 10 to 16 hours per day, and spend most of their waking hours eating bamboo shoots and leaves. Occasionally a Panda will eat insects or small animals. The Panda has a protrusion on its wrist, which the Panda can use like a thumb. This “sixth finger” is perfect for grasping bamboo stalks. Pandas are excellent tree climbers, and often climb trees to avoid enemies. However, they are not very good at climbing down from trees, and often fall in the process. Pandas have black fur around their eyes and on their ears, nose, shoulders, arms, and legs. Other areas of their bodies are covered by white or cream-colored fur. Their tails are white as well. Pandas are an endangered species. It is estimated that only about 1000 Pandas are living in the wild. This adorable giant panda is sitting with a bamboo branch in his paw. You can also make a giant panda posed walking as he gazes up from the ground. Choose whichever one you like! * After building the Panda model, you can use a black pen to cover the dotted lines in the black body areas.
