A panda is a type of bear that is originally found in the regions of south Central China. They are easily recognized by their large, distinctive black patches around its eyes, over the ears, and across its round body.

They are also known as the giant panda, the name which is sometimes used to differentiate them from the unrelated red panda. Their diet is over 99% bamboo, but in the wild, they will occasionally eat other grasses, wild tubers, or even meat like birds, rodents or carrion. In captivity, they are sometimes given honey, eggs, fish, yams, shrub leaves, oranges, or bananas with specially prepared food.

These cuddly animals are considered to be an endangered species and rely heavily on conservation efforts to increase their number. So just imagine the efforts of the staff in Zoo Atlanta in taking care of these animals. Their hard work eventually paid off when the female got pregnant but the carers were shocked when they had a closer look.
