Giant Pandas (Beginner – A2)

Giant Pandas - Transcript

Giant pandas are animals that live in the mountains of China. They are very small when they are born, but they become quite big as adults. Pandas have black and white fur that helps them to stay warm in cold weather. In summer, some of the panda’s hair falls out. This helps them to stay cool as the weather gets hot. Pandas eat lots of bamboo. In fact, an adult panda can eat up to 20 kilograms of bamboo each day. Pandas need strong claws to break the bamboo and even stronger teeth to chew it. Pandas will also eat fish and other small animals. Pandas are one of the most popular animals. People love them because they are cute and gentle.
