Pandas Like Being Alone by Erika Jordan


Panda families don’t live together. They are solitary, each female having a well-defined range. Males generally live apart, except for in the short breeding season (March to May), when they compete for female attention. Females raise the cubs alone. With their lack of desire to be around each other you can see why the panda is endangered.

With an uncommunicative and eccentric temperament, the giant pandas prefer the freedom of being alone, and sleep in the daytime and look for food in the night. After they spend a month with their partner during mating season, they leave a post it and go about their lives.

They love climbing trees and use their climbing skills to evade stronger competitors. The giant pandas also walk into the valley, sneak into mountain villages or residences. They play with round- shaped utensils as toys and later abandon them in the wild. Once in a while, the giant pandas also show their kindness to sheep and pigs by sharing food and rooms with them.

The giant pandas have a very docile temperament in most cases, and they often lower their heads or shade their faces with front paws to conceal their true appearances when they come across a man for the first time. Seldom actively attacking men or other animals, the giant pandas always evade them when coming across them. However, the giant pandas consider their cubs holy and untouchable once they give birth, and they will burst into rage at such small things as their cubs being watched by visitors. The giant pandas can stretch their paws and open their mouths wide like cats to make themselves more comfortable, and they can also shakewater off themselves like dogs after a heavy rain.
