Native to central-western and southwestern China, they are easily recognized by their large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, ears, and on their rotund bodies.

People love them partly on account that pandas all have an appealing baby-like cuteness that makes them resemble to living teddy bears, which draws hundreds of thousands of foreign visitors each year to come all the way to China only for a glimpse of these cute animals.
