Name: June Hagberg
I need information on Pandas for Grade 8. Habitat?
Food? Why are they endangered? How many in the wild?
In captivity? Breeding success in captivity? Etc.?
Thank you in advance!
Try an encyclopedia!!
Also, National Geographic magazine is sure to have at least one issue
in the last 10 years with an article on pandas.
Anyway, there are two species:
Red Panda: habitat: forests of the Himalayas and W China
food: roots, nuts, lichens, and bamboo shoots
status: unknown (to me...)
Giant Panda: habitat: cold bamboo forests of central China
food: young bamboo shoots
status: "very rare"
From: my handy-dandy single volume encyclopedia, New Webster's Universal
Encyclopedia; any of the usual multi-volume encyclopedias should have
much more info...
