Atlanta adult cam
Because they are native to high-elevation cool mountain forests, in the warmer months they will generally be in their climate-controlled dayroom habitats.
In the cooler months here in Atlanta, they may be either indoors or in their outdoor habitats.
Their hair is very dense, conserving their body heat in their cold habitats.
Their iconic coloration remains a mystery to scientists but may aid with camouflage.
Females are fertile for only a very short period of time and exhibit delayed implantation.
Although twins are not unusual, a mother will typically only rear one cub.
They are unique because, although they evolved among the mostly carnivorous bear species of the world, their diet is vegetarian.
The giant pandas may be seen year-round at virtually any time of day.
Research at Zoo Atlanta has demonstrated that vocalizations, although seemingly subtle, are crucially important communicative tools, especially during the reproductive season.
Our researchers also demonstrated that giant pandas have color vision.
Giant pandas are very unusual animals that eat almost exclusively bamboo, which is very low in nutrients.
Because of this, they have many unique adaptations for their low-energy lifestyle.
