A person who has a lifestyle that limits their success in the world, and causes them to risk elimination from the gene pool.

The term refers to the giant panda which only eats bamboo, a food that offers little nutritional value and only allows mother pandas to raise one cub at a time. In addition, panda bears are known for being reluctant to reproduce, severely limiting their species's success.

Humans can be referred to as "pandas" when they choose a lifestyle that limits their ability to earn a living, maintain their health, or provide for a family. This term is especially appropriate when a person squanders opportunities available to them.

Examples include: vegans, who prioritize the health and well-being of other animals above their own; and college dropouts, who had an opportunity to improve their life through education but failed to seize it.

Panda is a bear native to central-western and southwestern China. The Giant Panda was previously thought to be a member of the Procyonidae family. It is easily recognized by its large, distinctive black patches around the eyes, over the ears, and across its round body. Though belonging to the order Carnivora, the Giant Panda has a diet which is 99% bamboo. The Giant Panda may eat other foods such as honey, eggs, fish, yams, shrub leaves, oranges, and bananas when available. Also They rape fish.

A majestic animal that is black, white and asian. There are also a such thing as red pands which resemble foxes. Originated in China. They are vegetarians because they eat bamboo. They are known to eat 12 - 16 hours a day. They are adorable creatures. Sadly, they will soon be extinct.
That girl acts so much like a panda!

I love PANDAS!!!!!!! <3
