Pandas always have a big appetite. They eat at least 10 kg of bamboo each day. However, they don’t digest much of it, since bamboo is low in nutrients. That doesn’t prevent pandas from being connoisseurs: out of 100 bamboo species, only 25 are good enough for them.
Anatomically speaking, pandas count as carnivores, but they mainly eat plants.
