Background link: Why do pandas love snow?
Panda habit in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River in China alpine valley, living in 2600-3500 meters above sea level in the dense bamboo forest, where the temperature is below 20 ℃. Its humidity is often above 80%. Panda don’t fear of cold and wet, never hibernate. This is because the panda’s fur is thick, it is a good insulation material. And they are covered with a very thick layer of hair, hair surface is also rich in some fat. Such a thick “luxurious fur coat”, can play a good role in good heat preservation and dehumidification.
Have fun! Lovely panda!
