A Panda is a mob that could possibly be added in a future Minecraft update.
The idea for Pandas were originally conceived by Dinnerbone; When asked on Reddit: "If you could code any mob into the game, what would it be?", he replied "Pandas. I already tried playing with them, but I still need to get used to skinning and animating things." There is currently no model for Pandas in the code of the Minecraft.jar file.
With the addition of pandas, it is possible that a Bamboo plant could be added. These would most likely be found in swamps or jungles, as Pandas live in forests and eat bamboo, and in swamps are sugar canes and trees, which is the closest item to bamboo.
