Giant pandas are native to China, and are endangered.
They live in the central mountain ranges with a dense understory of bamboo which makes up 99% of their diet.
Pandas used to live in lowland areas too, but farming, deforestation, and development have reduced their habitat.
Apart from the small population in the wild, there are about 240 bears kept in captivity in China for research and breeding purposes, plus about 50 in zoos overseas.
