Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0715328522, Hardcover)With its large, friendly face and eyes exaggerated by black eye patches, China's national treasure, the giant panda, is instantly recognizable.
Giant pandas spend most f their time trying to eat enough bamboo to survive. The rest is spent conserving energy, and solitary pandas can be seen strolling along, stopping to recline on riverside rocks or amongst ferns. The lower body-weight and physical size of panda cubs mean that they have more energy to spend, and are seen climbing trees, play-fighting, doing somersaults and playing with bamboo.
Panda is a unique and intimate portrait of one of the world's best-loved animals. The extraordinary lives of the giant panda and the enchanting red panda are captured throughout the seasons in their remote mountain habitat. This selection of over 200 remarkable pictures shows pandas feeding, resting, playing, climbing trees and even sliding down snowy slopes, as well as showcasing the misty peaks and snow-clad forests of the beautiful Sichuan Province of China. Panda is a heart-warming and illuminating tribute to an endangered species that is loved the world over.
