Giant pandas live in a few mountain ranges in central China. Giant pandas live in broadleaf and coniferous forests with a dense understory of bamboo. The giant panda, a black-and-white bear, has a body typical of bears. It has black fur on ears, eye patches, muzzle, legs, and shoulders. The rest of the animal's coat is white. Scientists aren't sure how long giant pandas live in the wild, but they are sure it's shorter than lifespans in zoos. A wild panda spends much of its day resting, feeding, and seeking food.
