pandas are bear-like in shape with striking black and white markings.
The ears, eye patches, legs, and shoulder band are black; the rest of
the body is whitish. They have a thick, woolly coat to insulate them
from the cold. In general, adult giant pandas are 5 to 6 feet tall
and weigh between 176 and 276 pounds, similar to the American black
bear. However, unlike the black bear, giant pandas do not hibernate
and cannot walk on their hind legs. The "Giant" Pandas are
hardly "Giants". It would take about 40 giant pandas to weigh
as much as one elephant.
