Panda Appearance and Characteristics

An adult giant panda is normally 150 cm in length and weighs 80-150kg. Their body colour is a sharp combination of black and white. Black hairs usually grow around its eyes, ears, nose, chest, hands and feet, while the body and tail are in white. The black hairs surrounding its eyes make them look bigger so as to scare away other animals. The black and white skin colour helps giant pandas identify each other and would perform an avoidance function. It also serves the function of camouflage in snow land and forest areas. Hair all over their body is thick and coarse, offering protection and warmth.
