What do pandas eat?

Giant pandas eat almost nothing but bamboo stems, shoots and leaves. Occasionally they eat carrots, apples and other vegetation, but bamboo accounts for 99 percent of their diet. Due to the lack of nutrients in the plant, pandas need to consume huge amounts of it in order to build up sufficient energy. An adult panda can spend around 14 hours eating every day and can consume around 40 kilograms of bamboo.
