For the much smaller red animal, see Red panda.
A large bear-like creature with a striking coat of black and white hair. It feeds on bamboo forests.

Pandas are large mammals found roaming alone through temperate forests. They are noted for their distinctive black and white coloration, and their dependence upon bamboo.

Pandas are fairly docile and will generally run away from dwarves. Unless they are attacked, they pose little threat. When angry, however, they are strong enough to kill an unarmed/untrained peasant.

Note that trained and tame pandas will only eat bamboo, and can easily starve unless assigned to a pasture with ample bamboo in it. The elves will not bother to mention this detail to you when they bring pandas for trade.

Pandas can be kept as livestock and bred for a meat industry, however their dietary requirements will necessitate excessive micromanagement. Their butchering returns are twice as valuable as common critters, but there are many easier and more lucrative options for livestock.

Admired for their striking coloration, their big fluffy heads and bellies, and their lazy nature
