It is ranked even above tigers on the endangered animals' list. There are only a few hundreds of giant pandas left in the wild. These pandas do not breed in captivity and die very soon.

The giant pandas are still found in the regions of Sichuan, Shaanxi and the Gansu provinces of China today. They were known to live in the lowland areas. However, due to the high population of China and the extensive farming, the loss of their habitat has led to their near extinction. By the mid of the century, the giant pandas are expected to become extinct.

They eat bamboo and they have such tough teeth that it helps to crush the bamboo with their jaws. The giant pandas may look cute, but they can be as dangerous as a bear found in the wild.
