Loveliness in Summer


With its own thick fur, summer is not a good season for the giant panda. With the coming of summer, wild giant pandas move into the cooler area at higher altitude and lower temperature for summering, while captive giant pandas live in the indoor enclosure with air conditioners. Anyway, the warm temperature doesn’t hamper giant pandas showing their loveliness.

Loveliness in Autumn


Autumn is the season of harvest. Every year in summer and autumn, giant panda mothers gives birth to newborn cubs. It has to be said that the giant panda is born to a lovely creature, for its pink body is covered with undercoat; rice-sized ears rise slightly; and bright tail tip shakes now and then. Although newborn cubs could not open their eyes, they can cry loudly to announce their arrival at the world.
