Bamboo that Giant Pandas will eat
Giant pandas don’t eat all types of bamboo. They only eat about 20 types like arrow bamboo, black bamboo and ‘water bamboo’. With changing seasons, giant pandas would change their preferences for different bamboo parts. Because they will eat tons of bamboo, they would only eat the best part with the richest nutrition to be more efficient in consuming nutrition. In breeding time, they love to eat bamboo culm, and in others, they love bamboo leaves. But the juicy bamboo shoot is always their favourite (source: Pandaful).
