 Pandas are the most adorable creatures . They are one of the cutest animals found on earth. That’s why a variety of stuffed toys are made for little ones  to give their cute  appearance !!

Pandas are   carnivores, however their diet consists of 99% bamboo. Bamboo is not very nutritious, making them lazy as balls. They even avoid steeply sloping hills to limit energy expenditures. They limit social interactions and will kill humans out of irritation.
