Who Eats Bamboo in Animals?

Only bamboo is consumed by pandas, bamboo rats, and bamboo lemurs. Bamboo is occasionally consumed by many other creatures, including golden monkeys. Eaten prepared, bamboo shoots are by people.

Animals that consume a lot of bamboo have developed defences against the cyanide chemicals that bamboo produces.

One variety of grass is bamboo. It is renowned for its capacity for rapid growth. Before generating shoots that grow upward, running bamboo sends out underground shoots that can go great distances.

Bamboo’s woody stems are utilised in building and as a source of fibre. Rivercane, the sole species of bamboo that is indigenous to North America, was formerly a significant natural resource for Native Americans, serving as both a food source and a building material.
