Despite its taxonomic classification as a carnivoran, the giant panda's diet is primarily herbivorous, consisting almost exclusively of bamboo.[21] However, the giant panda still has the digestive system of a carnivore, as well as carnivore-specific genes,[27] and thus derives little energy and little protein from consumption of bamboo. >http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Giant_panda
