Science fact of the day: Red Pandas Eat 20% – 30% of Their Body Weight Daily

Red pandas mostly eat bamboo shoots and leaves.

Because bamboo doesn’t supply a large amount of energy and is hard to digest, red pandas eat 20 – 30% of their body weight each day. That’s about 2 – 4 pounds of bamboo, or roughly 20,000 bamboo leaves per day!
