What's Black and White and Loved all Over?

It’s Miranda Panda, our 2010 Cookie Program mascot! You might have met her at our recent Cookie Kickoff at the San Diego Zoo, or seen her groovy cookie program incentives.

Get to know Miranda and her panda pals with these fun facts:

  • When pandas are born, they have no hair and are only about the size of a stick of butter. They can grow to weigh more than 300 pounds!
  • Pandas spend at least 12 hours a day eating. They eat mostly bamboo and love occasional sweet treats such as apples and honey (except for Miranda, who prefers Girl Scout Cookies).
  • Young pandas are curious and playful. They like to do somersaults and play with “toys” like blocks of ice. Watch pandas play with their icy birthday “cakes” at the San Diego Zoo!
  • The only wild pandas in the world live in the mountainous bamboo forests of southwestern China.
  • Pandas seem pretty quiet, but giant pandas can bleat, roar, growl and honk. They say a friendly “hello” by bleating like a lamb.
  • Pandas are endangered animals—there are only about 1,600 left on Earth due to their shrinking habitat and food supply. See how caring kids like you are taking action to help save the pandas.

More panda-monium!
