This is such a cute postcard!

Wild pandas live only in remote, mountainous regions in central China. These high bamboo forests are cool and wet, just as pandas like it. They may climb as high as 13,000 feet (3,962 meters) to feed on higher slopes in the summer season. They may appear sedentary, but they are skilled tree-climbers and efficient swimmers.

Giant pandas are solitary. They have a highly developed sense of smell that males use to avoid each other and to find females for mating in the spring. After a five-month pregnancy, females give birth to a cub or two, though they cannot care for both twins.
There are only about 1,000 giant pandas left in the wild. Perhaps 100 pandas live in zoos, where they are always among the most popular attractions. Much of what we know about pandas comes from study of these zoo animals, because their wild cousins are so rare and elusive.
