Giant Panda :: Panda Gigante

As I was preparing for the Bear collection I thought of working on all the existing bear species. I ended up working on three specific species but in the back of my mind I kept thinking of growing the family. Now the Giant Panda is joining the American black bear, the Grizzly and the Polar bears.

Giant Pandas live in forests in Central China. They love bamboo and they can eat up to 20 kg a day. Yet, being a bear, it’s digestive system was initially devised to eat meat, and they are unable to digest the cellulose contained in the bamboo. They overcome this problem with the help of microbes who digest it for them… is it not  clever?

The Giant Panda series includes brooches and earrings. To keep the pandas happy, there are also bamboo earrings. What to you think of them?

You can find the Panda Series wearable creatures in the shop.

Quando estava a preparar a coleção Urso pensei em fazer todas as espécies de ursos existentes. Acabei por  trabalhar em apenas três espécies mas com a ideia de aumentar a família. Agora os Pandas Gigantes vão juntar-se ao urso negro, ao urso pardo e ao urso polar.

Os Pandas Gigantes vivem em florestas na zona central da China. Adoram bambu e podem comer até 20 kg por dia. No entanto, sendo ursos, continuam a ter o sistema digestivo de um carnívoro  e são incapazes de digerir a celulose do bambu. Este problema é resolvido com a ajuda de micróbios que fazem a sua digestão por eles… não é inteligente?

A série Panda Gigante inclui pregadeiras e brincos. Para manter os pandas felizes, também existem brincos bambu. O que acham deles?

Podem encontrar a série Panda na loja.
