The short answer
Yes – pandas are very confident and comfortable swimmers.
You might think of pandas as cuddly and sedentary creatures, but they’re also very strong and surprisingly lean under all that fur! A strict diet of bamboo, bamboo and more bamboo definitely helps keep the fat off.
The bear family
Like other members of the bear family, giant pandas are strong swimmers. However they don’t typically spend much time in the water in the wild as they don’t hunt any marine life nor need to cross any significant rivers or masses of water in their natural environment.
