The giant panda is a bear native to south central China and their diet is over 99% bamboo.
There are over 200 pandas living in captivity and about another 2,000 or so living in the wild.
When it gets too hot, the pandas stay inside their air conditioned enclosures.

Typically, giant pandas live around 20 years in the wild and around 30 years in captivity. The oldest giant panda ever in captivity, a female named Jia Jia, died at the age of 38 in 2016.
It looks crowded but it’s actually not too bad.
The red panda is also native to this area of China.
Red pandas feed mainly on bamboo, but also eat fruits, eggs, insects, and birds.
The red panda is an endangered species mainly because of habitat loss and poaching.
