The giant panda has luxuriant black-and-white fur. Adults measure around 1.2 to 1.9 metres (3 feet 11 inches to 6 feet 3 inches) long,
including a tail of about 1015 cm (46 in), and 60 to 90 cm (24 to 35 in) tall at the shoulder.
Males can weigh up to 160 kg (350 lb).
Females (generally 1020% smaller than males) can weigh as little as 70 kg (150 lb), but can also weigh up to 125 kg (276 lb).
The average weight for adults is 100 to 115 kg (220 to 254 lb).
The giant panda has a body shape typical of bears.
It has black fur on its ears, eye patches, muzzle, legs, arms and shoulders.
The rest of the animal's coat is white. Although scientists do not know why these unusual bears are black and white,
speculation suggests that the bold colouring provides effective camouflage in their shade-dappled snowy and rocky habitat,[41] and that their eye patches might facilitate them identifying one another.
The giant panda's thick, woolly coat keeps it warm in the cool forests of its habitat.[41] The panda's skull shape is typical of durophagous carnivorans.
It has evolved from previous ancestors to exhibit larger molars with increased complexity and expanded temporal fossa.
A 110.45 kg (243.5 lb) giant panda has a 3D canine teeth bite force of 2603.47 newtons and bite force quotient of 292.
Another study had a 117.5 kg (259 lb) giant panda bite of 1298.9 newtons at canine teeth and 1815.9 newtons at carnassial teeth.
