Robust, peaceful, intent on munching on a piece of bamboo cane: this is probably one of the most widespread images of the Giant Panda, a very particular creature and, today, threatened by various problems.

"Giant Panda" or "Greater Panda" (scientific name "Ailuropoda melanoleuca") is the full name of the urside which has become a symbol of the WWF: it distinguishes it from its "relative", the "Lesser Panda", which differs greatly both in tonnage than in color.

But let's go back to the famous black and white bear, native to the Chinese region of Sichuan: an animal that for years represented a small puzzle for researchers. In fact, it has both characteristics that belong to bears, and others that bring it closer to raccoons. From extensive genetic tests, it became clear that the Giant Panda is a bear in all respects, with a particular diet.

In fact, although it is theoretically omnivorous, it feeds mainly on vegetables: bamboo is now firmly associated in the common imagination with this urside.

Here are some peculiarities of the cute black and white animal, which sees its habitat threatened.

That "sixth finger"

The front legs of the Panda apparently have a "sixth toe" which the animal uses to firmly grasp the bamboo canes. In reality it is not really a finger, but a modification of the wrist bone that occurred with evolution. Whatever its origin, however, the Panda really likes this feature that helps it to eat better!

The reason for the unusual color of the Giant Panda

It is believed that the particular black and white color is due to the habits of this animal, which does not hibernate and continues to roam in search of food even in winter . The black and white fur helps it blend in in the bare and mountainous environments of winter on the cold heights of Sichuan.

A not very prolific animal

The existence of Pandas is threatened by the destruction of their natural habitats , with the reduction of the presence of bamboo; another criticality, however, is represented by its not very prolific nature. The reproductive period generally does not exceed three weeks per year. Moreover, usually no more than three young are born and only one survives.

It also seems that these animals are very selective in choosing a partner!

In addition to the existence of specialized centers, the protection of Pandas is also guaranteed by operations to safeguard the environment: in freedom, two-colored bears have more possibilities to move over vast territories, meeting unrelated partners and giving birth to cubs that present new combinations. genetic.

A great greedy

We can understand how much the reduction of bamboo in nature represents a problem, from the quantities that the Panda devours daily to survive: about 12.5 kg per day . In fact, he spends between 12 and 16 hours a day busy feeding himself!
