Full Answer

Pandas are found in the temperate forests of China. In the wild, they eat a diet almost primarily of bamboo. They occasionally eat some grasses or small rodents. Pandas in captivity are fed a wider variety of fruits and vegetables along with bamboo, sugar and rice gruel. This is a solitary species, and they spend most of their adult lives alone.
