7. Do panda eat meat or bamboo?

The giant panda is a species of bear and therefore classified as a carnivore. It has the digestive system and canine teeth of a meat eater even though it has evolved over millions of years to primarily consume bamboo. Ancestors of modern giant pandas were carnivores and there are a number of theories as to why the species switched to a plant based diet. Many experts believe that this drastic dietary change was brought about by a combination of environmental and genetic factors. It is thought that approximately seven million years ago the animals which the giant pandas had depended upon for nourishment died off and disappeared due to changes in the natural habitat. Because of this shortage of prey, giant pandas then adapted to a new diet and lost their taste for meat. The animals are believed to have switched to an exclusively bamboo based diet about two million years ago.
