Pandas eat bamboo. Bamboo is very hard. It is not easy to digest, but pandas can do it!

This is very interesting to scientists. They want to know how the pandas do it. They study their poo.

Scientists want to create a biofuel. This biofuel is made from plants. The information from panda poo can help the scientists.

Pandas only eat some parts of the bamboo. Scientists want to know why, also.

Difficult words: digest (to change food into energy), poo (what comes out of the body after you eat something), create (to make), biofuel (energy for homes and cars from digestion).
