Panda Bear from China

We often see this animals look so sweet on the television, but actually this animals is bear, yes the Bear from China. The different of other bear that is usually eat meat, this bear is herbivore, eat of young bamboo leaf. May be similar with other animals world that many kind of similar animals but different meal. Like us a human from different area have different meal, people from Antarctica should eat meat everyday, different with normally people that just enough to eat of rice or bread plus others vegetables and many kind of fruit like tomato, mango, orange, papaya, fig fruit, kiwi, and many other of fruit.
Pandas comprise two species of mammals, each the sole member of its genus. The giant panda, Ailuropoda melanoleuca, is commonly classified as a bear, family Ursidae; the lesser, or red, panda, Ailurus Fulgens, is usually placed with the raccons, family Procyonidae.

The giant panda, a rare and closely protected pandas animal lives in the cool, panda including of endanger species that still exist now, damp bamboo forestsof mountainous central China, generally at elevations of 1500 to 4000 m (5000 TO 13000 ft). Its thick, wooly coat is black or brownish black and yellowish white; the darker color terms patches around the eyes, covers the ears, legs, and chest, and forms a band across the shoulders. Giant pandas grow to 1.5 m (5 ft) long, plus a short tail, and weigh 150 kg (330 lb) or more. Bamboo constitutes most of their diet. One or two young are born.

The lesser panda is found in the forested mountain of western China at elevations of 1.800 to 4000 m (6.000 to 13.000 ft). Its dense, wooly coat of reddish brown has lighter colored bands on the tail and dark red brown to black undersides. The face animal grows to 112 cm (44 in) long, including a 48 cm (19 in) tail, and weighs up to 5 kg (1.1 lb).

The panda polulation has declined sharply in the last decade, due to human encroachment of the pandas' natural habitats in bamboo thickets. Pandas are being forced to move into isolated communities, resulting in inbreeding and a loss of food. The chinese government has established 12 panda reverses with new breeding center in an attempt to prevent the panda's extinction. Breeding of pandas in captivity has had limited success, however, because their sexual habits are poorly understood.
