Giant pandas prefer to live in broadleaf and coniferous forests with dense bamboos, at altitude between 5,000 and 10,000 feet, which areas are bathed all year around by mist and rain.

A giant panda looks like the bear in shape. It has a white coat apart from the black near ears, eye patches, muzzle, legs, and shoulders. Some scientists say that such coloring offered effective camouflage when they were in shade-dappled snow and rock surroundings. The panda's coat helps to keeps warm. Giant pandas have molar teeth and a large jaw for chewing bamboo. Many people may think the animal cute, but a giant panda can be dangerous as any other type of bear.

About the size of the American black bear, the giant panda can reach four to six feet tall. Males are larger than females. The wild male panda can weigh up to 250 pounds. Females rarely reach 220 pounds.

The giant panda is listed by the World Conservation Union's (IUCN's) Red List of Threatened Animals as an endangered species.  About 1,000 pandas live in the wild, about 140 in zoos or breeding centers, mostly in China.
