Dreamwork's "Kung Fu Panda," is a close called interpretation of a real life panda-personality, in terms of their eating habits. They eat fast, they eat a lot and spend about twelve hours a day doing it. However they are not considered obese like Kung Fu Panda. There is no time to be kung fu fighting in the real life of a panda, as to stay healthy they have to eat a lot - up to 15 percent of their bodyweight in 12 hours, so that's why they have to eat fast. A panda can peel and eat a bamboo shoot in about 40 seconds! Pandas are endangered, and there are only about 1,600 of them left in the wild, so it's a good thing they are not going on daring adventures like Kung Fu Panda.
