A male panda can weigh up to 250 pounds, while a female panda can reach a weight of up to 220 pounds. Pandas can reach a length of 4 to 6 feet and a height from ground to shoulder of 2 to 3 feet when on all fours.

Pandas are found in the temperate forests of China. In the wild, they eat a diet almost primarily of bamboo. They occasionally eat some grasses or small rodents. Pandas in captivity are fed a wider variety of fruits and vegetables along with bamboo, sugar and rice gruel. This is a solitary species, and they spend most of their adult lives alone.
