signifying that although complete herbivory occurred around 2 mya, the dietary switch was initiated prior to T1R1 loss-of-function.The giant panda is a conservation reliant vulnerable species.While the dragon has often served as China's national symbol, internationally the giant panda appears at least as commonly.and each adult has a defined territory, and a female is not tolerant of other females in her range.Social encounters occur primarily during the brief breeding season in which pandas in proximity to one another will gather.

Anthropologist Russell Ciochon observed: "[much] like the vegetarian gorilla, the low body surface area to body volume [of the giant panda] is indicative of a lower metabolic rate.

This lower metabolic rate and a more sedentary lifestyle allows the giant panda to subsist on nutrient poor resources such as bamboo." Large molars crush and grind fibrous plant material.

The pandas would move from the valleys into the Qinling Mountains and would only return to the valleys in autumn.

During the summer months bamboo shoots rich in protein are only available at higher altitudes which causes low calcium rates in the pandas and during breeding season the pandas would trek back down to eat bamboo leaves rich in calcium.
