Panda Bears Babies

Discover how panda bears are born.

At birth, the baby is blind and its skin has a pinkish color (product of a chemical reaction between the skin of the newborn and the saliva of its mother), a month after birth the panda will acquire its traditional pigmentation.

The mother will breastfeed her baby 6 to 14 times a day for a period of 30 minutes at a time. Only for three or four hours will he abandon his offspring to procure food, during this time the young is left defenseless. Although panda breeding is able to ingest small amounts of bamboo from six months weaning occurs at one year of life.

On the other hand, the baby begins to walk (awkwardly) after 75 days, since then the mother will stimulate him playing and fighting with her.

The offspring will live with their mother (since the father does not take part in the upbringing) until two years of life. The interval between a litter of young and another can last more than two years.
