panda, is a bear native to south central China. It is easily recognized
by the large, distinctive black patches around its eyes, over the ears,
and across its round body. The name "giant panda" is sometimes used to
distinguish it from the unrelated red panda. Though it belongs to the
order Carnivora, the giant panda's diet is over 99% bamboo. Giant pandas
will occasionally eat other grasses, wild tubers, or even meat in the
form of birds, rodents, or carrion.The giant panda lives in a
few mountain ranges in central China, mainly in Sichuan, but also in
neighboring Shaanxi and Gansu. As a result of farming, deforestation,
and other development, the giant panda has been driven out of the
lowland areas where it once lived.While the dragon has often
served as China's national symbol, internationally the giant panda
appears at least as commonly. As such, it is becoming widely used within
China in international contexts.When people think of China,
they often think of the panda. The Chinese regard them as a symbol for
friendship and peace. The panda has an important place in Chinese
culture and history. In the Xizhou Dynasty, the panda was described as
an invincible animal, as strong as a tiger. As a tribute to kings and
emperors, a panda's pelt was often given during that time.During
the Ming dynasty, the panda was often thought to have medical powers.
The pelt supposedly could repel plague and prevent tumors.
