No. Pandas and koalas are not even in the same order or family, let alone species. Koalas are marsupials, and not members of the bear family at all. The koala's family is Phas…colarctidae. Pandas are placental mammals, and true members of the bear family, which is Ursidae.
No, the largest species of bear is the Kodiak bear :D
Pandas are dying out mainly because of one main reason: habitat loss. Their main source of food is bamboo, which takes a long time to grow. This problem wasn't present when pa…ndas were spread throughout the massive south-east of Asia, including China. Hence, when a forest of bamboo was being consumed by them, or a forest bloomed out, they could simply move to another bamboo forest, but as the forests have been cut down the Pandas are finding food supply harder to find after a bloom out. Industrialization needs people to clear off these ranges or lands for factories and agriculture. Hence, bamboo forests in Asia started to decline tremendously. Wild pandas have been reported to die because of starvation simply because they cannot reach the next bamboo forest quickly enough, or at all. Habitat fragmentation affects their feeding, and mating as well, anytime the Panda has to leave their territory, they are at risk. Pandas, too, are picky regarding their mates. But an even larger problem than the panda's selective behavior is, females are only fertile, or in their reproductive cycle for for about 5 days. For a male to find a female in the wild, and quickly enough to mate with her while she is still fertile, is a small miracle. The odds are against it happening, there are a lot fewer pandas surviving in the wild, and the habitat is filled with fences, walls, roads, and other obstacles. Pandas are endangered because they are getting hunted by people who are killing off these animals without knowing that they are endangered and have no concerns, or cares about the balance and well-being of the ecosystem. The Panda is a specialized species and that creates a level of strain that is sensitive to any outside pressures and can quickly endanger the species continued survival. The panda's requirements are very restrictive, for example their diet; they really only eat bamboo, and in such quantities that it requires large bamboo forests with dense undergrowth to support them. They can now only be found in south-china. The "specialists" of the animal kingdom is in a way "predisposed" toward endangerment, and need to be watched or monitored closely when they come into contact with humans, or during any weather events that can cause serious damage to their habitat. For more details related to the Giant Panda, and the threats they face please see the sites listed below.
Us humans affect them by not only hunting them but we are cutting down the rainforests they use as a habitat. Also we are cutting down and using their main food source bamboo….
as a matter of fact there are 26 different species of panda
It of course is a bear species. It is even in the name Panda bear.
There are only 2 spieces of panda in the whole world
Answer There are several types of Bamboo that Pandas eat. The main type of Bamboo they eat is called the 'Grass Bamboo.' It is mainly found on the trees in the thi…ck undergrowth of the forests in China. There are at least 3 or 4 other types of Bamboo that are not as commonly eaten simply because the Grass Bamboo is much easier to find.
Red Pandas are mainly an endangered species due to habitat loss and fragmentation, poaching and inbreeding depression.
theyre becoming endangered and maybe extinct because people are tearing down their homes and bamboo is being cut down
pandas are endangered because people are cutting down bamboo forests and also because people are hunting them for their fur
In Giant Pandas
Pandas bark, growl, yip, etc. They have even been known to moo!
In Giant Pandas
There are 42 different bamboo species that pandas eat. Some of the more common species are Chimonobambusa Quadrangularis, Bambusa Sinospinosa, Plyllostachys Bissetii and F…argesia Robusta.
