10 Cute Facts About Pandas

#8. Panda poop

Eating so much bamboo has its repercussion. Apparently, pandas can poop as such as 28 kilos a day. It also makes tracking them very easy as the poop points towards the direction of their travel.

#9. Conservation

Once upon a time, they used to be hunted for their pelts as it was believed to ward off evil spirits. Now with just 1000 pandas surviving, the focus is towards conservation. Hunting them carries strict penalties.

#10. Hibernation

Though they are essentially bears but they don’t hibernate like other bears. When winter comes, they just go lower elevations such as base of the mountains. One reason why they do not hibernate is because their bodies do not allow them. They mainly eat bamboo which prevents them from building fat reserves that can last throughout winters.
