Giant pandas have a bear like appearance. Their distinctive black and white colouring makes them one of the best-known species in the world. They can reach 6 ft (1.9 m) in height and in the wild weigh around 220–250 lb (110–115 kg), although adult males can weigh up to 350 lbs (160 kg). The reason behind the black and white coat is unknown, but it is thought that the colouring provides camouflage for giant pandas in their natural environment. Giant pandas live in bamboo forests in remote mountainous regions of western China. The majority can be found in Sichuan province but they also inhabit areas in the neighbouring provinces of Shaanxi and Gansu. The cool wet environment provides the perfect habitat for giant pandas that feed almost exclusively on bamboo.
