Unusual adaptations

  1. 1. By Tyler Chomyn
  2. 2.  Giant Pandas live in a few mountain ranges in central China, in Sichuan, Shaanxi, and Gansu province. Giant pandas live in broadleaf and coniferous forests with a dense understory of bamboo, at elevations between 5000 and 10 000 feet.
  3. 3.  A wild giant panda’s diet is 99% bamboo. The balance consists of other grasses and occasional small rodents or musk deer fawns. In zoos, giant pandas eat bamboo, sugar cane, rice gruel, a special high-fiber biscuit, carrots, apples, and sweet potatoes.
  4. 4.  An extra “thumb” to help hold the bamboo. The extra thumb is actually the radial semisoid bone. Super strong jaw muscles and huge molars to crush the bamboo. Thick fur to survive in cool forests.
  5. 5.  Pandas relocate to lower altitudes during winter and spring. Pandas do not hibernate like other bears. Pandas have the ability to climb trees
  6. 6.  Bald eagles live near large bodies of water like lakes, marshes, seacoasts, and rivers. Their range is the border of Mexico through the USA and Canada. Theyre extremely populous in the state of Alaska!!
  7. 7.  Bald eagles love fish!!! When fish aren’t available, they’ll eat whatever they can including tiny birds, rodents, and dead meat. Bald eagles aren’t afraid to steal food from other birds.
