A documentary about a big panda
Panda big - description
The big panda is a mammal now in the family of bears. He lives in the mountainous areas of the central part of the People's Republic of China, such as Sečuan. From the second half of 20. century, the panda has become the national symbol of China and is depicted on Chinese gold coins. In September, 2016 shifted to IUCN from the category of endangered species to vulnerable.
The big panda lives almost continuously inside bamboo thickets. Although it is among the beasts, its food is predominantly plant. Its digestive tract has a rather common structure for carnivores, but a unique bacterial microflora in the intestines allows it to digest this difficult food without difficulty. Professionally, he is a omnivore because he is known to occasionally feed eggs and, together with bamboo, also consumes some insects. They are the necessary sources of protein for it.
