A giant panda.

The Giant Panda, or Panda Bear, is a large black and white mammal native to central-western and southwestern China, today classified as a member of the bear family (Ursidae)[1], though its unusual unbearlike features and habits for a long period consigned it to its own family (the Ailuridae).

The giant panda has a diet which is 98% bamboo, with other foods including fish, honey and yams. The Giant Panda is an endangered animal, with an estimated 3,000 pandas alive in the wild, though intensive conservation efforts have been made by the Chinese.

evolutionists such as Stephen Jay Gould have tried to claim that the "Panda's Thumb", which is a modified Seamoid bone, is evidence of evolution. Gould claimed that an actual Intelligent Designer would have made the Panda's thumb the same as the human thumb. But all this shows is microevolution not macroevolution possibly occurring in the Panda. This argument also assumes that the Designer would want to design the Panda the same way He designed the human. This assumption depends on revelation or hubristic assumptions about the nature of God.[2]

Trivia

Some British police cars are referred to as panda cars for their black and white markings, others (with a red stripe down their side) are referred to as jam sandwiches.
