And you thought you were eating your vegetables.

Pandas consume between 20-40 pounds of bamboo a day.

Their digestive tract absorbs only about 20% of the nutrients, so they must eat large amounts of bamboo to meet their energy and nutrient needs.

I've always had a penchant for pandas since they are black and white and resemble my beloved. Tell me this video doesn't make you want to take one home. Make sure you have your volume on to hear their lovely voices :)
