A panda is a peaceful creature with a distinctive black and white coat. A newborn panda is about the size of a stick of butter—about 1/900th the size of its mother—but can grow to up to 330 pounds as an adult. These bears are excellent tree climbers despite their bulk.
Pandas live mainly in bamboo forests high in the mountains of western China, where they subsist almost entirely on bamboo. They must eat from 26 to 84 pounds of it every day, a formidable task for which they use their enlarged wrist bones that function as opposable thumbs.
It took me a while to finish these two quilling pandas. After I computerized them into a bamboo forest, they appeared to be soooo… cute and happy.
Love pandas, how about you?
