  Giant pandaswere carnivores long time ago. After millions of years of evolution, 99% of their diet is bamboo shoots and bamboo. Their digestive tract is still as short as carnivores.So pandas can not digest bamboo very well. They only can absorb a few nutrition from their food. Because of this, giant pandas need consume lots of bamboo everyday, digest them quickly and move less to obtain enough energy. They spend most of their time at eating or digesting everyday.

  Comments: This one combines two different poses: o "The Drunken Beauty"with"Lin Daiyu Buries Fallen Flowers". It shows a special aesthetics. Compared with “bending over,” the “lying on the side” needs more strength from the single arm to support and control the entire body and maintain balance.


  3. Lying down
