Giant pandas have powerful jaws and teeth that are flat and well-adapted to a bamboo diet. The giant panda mating season is between March and May and young are usually born in August or September. Giant pandas are reluctant to breed in captivity. Giant pandas spend between 10 and 12 hours each day feeding and foraging for food (Source: Bies).
