Panda Updates – Wednesday, June 2
We are officially coming up on the end of bamboo shoot season. Very soon, the pandas will go back to their regular diet of bamboo stalks. Although it appears that they are eating the entire stalk, they are actually eating the softer inner layer of the stalk, called the culm. As the summer approaches, giant pandas tend to transition from eating the bamboo culm to eating bamboo leaves.
