The panda lives in Asia and China and lives in the mountains. They used to live in the lowlands but because of deforestation they have been forced up into the mountains.

Panda are solitary so they really do not have relationships with other living things. The only time they spend with other pandas is when they mate or raise their young.

Their diet consists mostly of bamboo but they will eat eggs or small creatures if they come across them. Sometimes they eat different plants as well.

A major concern is the loss of bamboo that is available to the panda. When a shortage of bamboo occurs, it is possible that it may starve.
