The National Panda Day it’s celebrated every year on March 16.
Origami Panda Bear
Panda bear is a bear native to south central China. They are cute large, black and white fluffy animals. The black patches are around his eyes, ears and across it’s body.
They are part of the Ursidae family, as well as the Carnivora Order, witch means they share a lot in common with dogs.
Their favorite foods are bamboo shoots and leaves. But sometimes in the wild they also eat meat, like birds, rodents or carrion.
Panda day was created to help spread the word about the deforestation that is leading to the destruction of their habitats and placed them on the endangered animals list.
They are sensitive creatures, and need our help with controlling the predators in their area and protecting their habitat.
