Panda Sweet Tooth / by Pandas International
Based on a recent study, it turns out pandas have a sweet tooth. We know they primarily munch on bamboo — and that in captivity, they enjoy sweeter treats like apples and sweet potatoes — but these findings tell us more than just that. It’s actually an effort to go back in time and and understand their ancient diet, predating the human impact on their environment.
