How Many Fingers Does a Panda Have?

Unlike other mammals, the giant panda has 6 toes instead of 5. However, this extra toe, which acts as a thumb, is not a real toe.

Bear has five fingers.

Mother Nature endowed the bear with an elongated wrist bone. This allows him to grab bamboo stalks, his only food.

Panda has five fingers & one finger.

Bamboo has a very low nutritional value. Therefore, in order to survive, the panda must eat about 30 kg of bamboo per day. And without an additional “gripping tool” he would hardly have been able to do this. By the way, the panda often eats more than 14 hours a day.

Unfortunately, the habitat of these cute, lazy bears is under threat. While the remaining specimens are well protected, the relatively slow reproduction rate is not exactly conducive to a rapid population increase.
