General Knowledge about Giant Pandas

​In1869, French missionary Armand Pere David obtained a specimen of giant panda from Sichuan. Considering that pandas look like bears, he named it as Ursus melanoleucus A.David (Black-and-white Bear). Later, research has been conducted on the teeth and bones of giant pandas, and found that their characteristics are more like those of lesser pandas. So the creature is renamed as Aliuropoda melanoleuca David.
