The giant panda is also known as the panda bear, bamboo bear, or in Chinese as Daxiongmao, the "large bear cat."

The scientific name (Ailuropoda melanoleuca) means "black and white cat-footed animal."

The giant panda is believed to have made its first appearance during the late Pliocene or early Pleistocene, perhaps no more than two to three million years ago.

In the second century AD the giant panda was a rare and semi-divine animal inside China.

In the Han dynasty (206 BC-24 AD) emperor's garden, in the then capital Xian, held nearly 40 rare animal species, of which the panda was the most highly treasured.

The Chinese poet Bai Juyi credited the panda with the mystical powers capable of warding off natural disasters and exorcising evil spirits.

Scientists have debated for more than a century whether giant pandas belong to the bear family, the raccoon family, or a separate family of their own.

Giant pandas are found only in the dense bamboo and coniferous mountains of central China.

The giant panda was totally unknown outside the secretive "Middle Kingdom" until the declining Qing Dynasty was slowly forced to open its doors to trade and Christianity towards the end of the 19th century.
