Favorite Organism and Ecological Niche

Favorite Organism and Ecological Niche

My favorite organism is the Panda Bear from central western and south western China.  The panda bear needs several things to survive in that area such as a regular source of water, a large enough area to prevent confrontation between the bears but close enough to other pandas to mate, clean air, and a minimal amount of predators in their area for their young to grow up safely.  All these things are relatively common features for every animal and are included in most ecological niches.  The feature that makes the panda bear’s ecological niche specific to them is bamboo.  Each panda bear eats about 25 lbs of bamboo every day.  It is the primary feature in their diet and each one of them needs to be able to have access to the food they need to survive and procreate.
