The giant panda, also known as panda bear or simply panda, is a bear native to south central China. It is easily recognized by the large, distinctive black patches around its eyes, over its 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.The panda is often compared to the yin and yang because of its black and white spots. The panda's calm demeanor is a demonstration of how, when balanced, the yin and yang are harmonious and peaceful.
