10 Ultra-Cute Panda Facts (and why we love them!)

It’s our favorite time of year again here at Oh K! – World Panda Day! To celebrate, here are 10 facts about our furry-friends for you to read while you mask!

1. Pandas are much bigger than your average teddy bear.

Ranging from 100-300 pounds, a wild panda can be up to 5 foot tall!

2. Did you know Pandas are not always black and white?

From birth, most pandas are pink and brown. It’s not until they are 3 weeks old that the iconic black and white fur begins to GLOW through.

 3. It’s scientifically proven that pandas are the CUTEST (literally)!

Scientist Gordan Buchanan looked into why almost everyone has a soft spot for the bear. Simple answer? They trigger what is known as our ‘cuteness receptors’, giving us feel-good emotions!

4. Pandas know how to self-care – FUR real!

Very different to our own busy schedules, Pandas tend to fill their days with only sleeping & eating, with very little active hours.

 8. Pandas do not hibernate!

Unlike their teddy-bear cousins, Pandas tend to travel to warmer temperatures and down mountains during the winter, taking their food and pups with them!



9. Just like us, Pandas go through 2 sets of teeth in their lifetime.

Now show us those pearly whites!

10. Pandas fur is actually not as cuddly as we thought...

Pass us a hair mask! While pandas fur can look super soft and cuddly, their fur is actually thick and wiry – growing up to 10cm long in length.
