The giant panda is also known as the panda bear, bamboo bear, or in Chinese as “Daxiongmao” the “Large Bear Cat.” In fact, its scientific name means “black and white cat-footed animal.”
Giant pandas have existed since the Pleistocene Era (about 600,000 years ago), when the China was extended further, towards the present southern China. Fossil remains of this creature have also been found in Burma. Check out some of the birth of these panda bear photos..hope I can travel to China to see some real panda bears one day 😛
The Panda Bear is considered to be one of the most endangered animal species left on the earth.
Today it is found only in China, but once it ranged from Burma in the south to the outskirts of Beijing
in the north. In China, the Panda lives in six small areas located on the higher altitudes and believed
to possess magical powers that could protege off natural disasters and evil spirits.
The Panda was believed to have magical powers that could ward off natural disasters and evil spirits. Writings about the Pandas can be traced back 3,000 years. They were even kept as pets by Chinese Emperors.
