Are panda bears considered friendly?
They are peaceful animals, but you shouldn’t provoke them. If they are born in captivity and get lots of human care, their level of friendliness might increase. Due to their plant-based diet (Bamboo), they may seem to be a peaceful animal and slow in motion, but if you provoke them or they feel threatened, they might get pissed and bite you with their big teeth and even hit you with their forepaws.
Do pandas attack humans as other bears do?
They are in the same family with bears, do not mess with them. Just because they look cute and cuddly doesn’t mean they are not dangerous. Unlike the red pandas, giant pandas certainly do not have an interest in eating humans as their digestive system is designed to consume more vegetables like Bamboo.
