Giant panda attacks on human are rare. There, we present three cases of giant panda attacks on humans at the Panda House at Beijing Zoo from September 2006 to June 2009 to warn people of the giant panda’s potentially dangerous behavior.
Solitary in the wild, pandas don’t even have meaningful, lasting relationships with one another. … Despite that, the panda keepers I spoke with told me that pandas can develop significant—if temporary and highly conditional—relationships with humans.
The reason is because China leases the each panda to zoos for $2 million (in “panda cost and research”). And then there are the habitats the zoos must build, plus the expensive diets they have – oh, and if there’s a baby, that’s another $600,000 per year.

The simple answers is: bamboo
While they are almost entirely vegetarian, pandas will sometimes hunt for pikas and other small rodents. Indeed, as members of the bear family, giant pandas possess the digestive system of a carnivore, although they have evolved to depend almost entirely on bamboo.
