14 Hour Meals

Pandas eat for up to 14 hours a day. Their unique paws make it possible for them to hold bamboo and bite the stalks. They generally eat in a sitting position but also like to snack lying on their backs.

When available, Giant Pandas will eat fish, flowers and small animals. In captivity they also receive milk, eggs, ground meat and specially formulated vitamin bread. Apples and carrots are a favorite treat.
