Children can learn about pandas on the Atlanta Zoo's website at ZooAtlanta.org and the World Wide Fund for Nature's website at WWF.org. Both websites have photographs and lists of facts about pandas.
According to the World Wide Fund for Nature, the panda is one of the most endangered bears in the world. In the wild, pandas live in the coniferous and broad leaf forests of southwest China. Pandas have thick coats, strong jaws and are approximately the same size as an American black bear. In the wild, pandas primarily eat bamboo, but in captivity zoos add apples, carrots, sugar cane and sweet potatoes to their diets.
