Acrobats on the Tree
Date: 2019-07-22

More than 100kg in weight, and nearly 180cm in height, adult giant pandas are quite flexible rather than clumsy. Not only adult giant pandas but also cubs are good at balance. They seem to be acrobats especially when they are on the tree.


It is pretty normal to see an adult panda sleeping, lying, or relaxing on the tree in a leisure way. It looks like just a piece of cake to control a more-than-100kg body upon the tree.

With good sense of balance, giant pandas can enjoy their life on the tree, even on a slim branch. In the dense forest, trees are good friends of giant pandas. Although they are huge in body shape, they are good climber. Most of time, giant pandas enjoy sleeping on the tree which affords them a sense of safety. And during their daily life, they also like hanging upon the tree for the good view and environment.
