Most people know that the panda snack of choice is bamboo and that they are fond of the odd nap. That the shy and elusive panda bear comes from China, and is perilously close to extinction. And if you paid attention in biology lessons, or regularly watch late night nature programmes, you might know that the panda cub is smaller than a stick of butter when born, or, that they bleat like goats rather than roar like bears...

Only a true panda expert, however, would know these startling facts:
That the otherwise slow moving Panda can outrun a cheetah when moving backwards
That panda fur, when woven into a fabric, is bulletproof
A panda briefly replaced Ringo Starr in the Beatles
Pandas were frequently used as background extras in classic black and white films
That all panda cubs or 'cubinetts' as they are called, are born female and will only turn male if given a fright in their first 48 hours

100 FACTS ABOUT PANDAS, chronicles for the very first time the amazing social, cultural and natural history of the panda, fully illustrated with photographic evidence, drawings and scientific diagrams and shocking case-studies. You'll never see a panda in the same light again.
