Panda in history

Chinese discovered giant panda much earlier than the western world. The famous literatures Shangshu and Shijing published about 3,000 years ago in the Western Zhou dynasty named giant panda as “Pi”. Another geographical literature Shanhaijing published 2,500 years ago also read – “The black and white creature that looks like a bear is called a ‘Mo’”. In Western Jin Dynasty (1,700 years ago), giant panda was called “Zou Yu”. As they eat only bamboo and do not hunt, they can peacefully live together with other animals. Pandas are therefore called “kind beast” symbolising peace.
