Panda drawing

Another sketchfu challenge drawing I did so many years ago. Pandas have been in decline for years. They are limited by the food they eat (bamboo) and their habitat is disappearing like many places where the pressure of agriculture outweighs the needs of animals.

Panda jaws are very strong to chew bamboo which is why they have a fixed characteristic “smile”.

They are iconic animals and the World wide fund for nature uses a stylised panda as its symbol.

There are breeding programmes but nothing can compare to an animal in the wild, not cooped up in a zoo. Unfortunately poaching is a prolem as with other animals like gorillas.

I loved drawing this. Some challenges were a bit irksome but this was fun.
