If you are bored of leopard or zebra these types of animal prints, why don't we try some panda prints to refresh our summer? Those adorable and precious animals inspired me this time, so let's talk about panda today (not Kung Fu Panda sadly).
Around 3000 years ago, Chinese people recorded panda as incredible creature in history books, such as“Classic of Poetry","Adventure across Mounts and Sea", they described panda as one of the most aggressive creature which looks like bear. They used to join the war as the icon of army. Thousands years after, panda's name changed many times, people found generally they are vegetarian(actually they eat everything), then panda became the icon of peace.
In the Tang dynasty，Empress Wu Zetian gave Japanese Emperor 2 pandas as gift, that was the first record that chinese government sent panda to abroad. French monk A.David found panda on 1869, he carried samples of them back to Europe. On 1938, London Zoo bought 4 pandas, during WWII, these panda's lovely pictures used to cheer people up from the war.
Chinese people called panda as " Cat bear", it means their face as round as cats and the body as strong as bears. Because of change of environments and degradation of the reproductive system, the amount of panda keep reducing. As the icon of peace, we loves them and protect them as much as we could.
Enjoy the Panda look!
