Giant Pandas like bamboo so much that not only do they eat it 99% of the time, but they also usually eat 20-40lbs of it in a single day! In order to consume so much of it, they spend about half the day eating!Although an adult Giant Panda usually weighs around 220-250lbs, the babies are much smaller at birth – only about 3-5 ounces!!What other neat things have you learned about pandas?
