Why doesn't the mother panda bear hibernate in the winter?

The diet of the panda prevents it from putting on the necessary fat to be able to survive hibernation. They must eat almost constantly just to maintain their daily life. What's more, the panda lives in a temperate climate where food is available all year so there is no need for hibernation.

It is always cold in the moutain so they have no reason to hibernate.
