Dogs that look like pandas: why pandas look like dogs

In the early 20th century, European zookeepers first saw a bear-like animal in the cages at their zoo. The bear-like animal was initially mistaken for a panda and named Padda pandisca.

The species Padda pandisca is now classified as belonging to the subfamily lurinae, of the family Ursidae (the bear family). In English it is most commonly known as the Malayan panda.

Although the name panda is not generally used to describe this bear, the name has been applied to its relatives. The giant panda, also known as the red panda or the rock panda, is the most famous of the lurine bears.

The giant panda (luropoda melanoleuca), or "giant red panda" is an endangered species of bear that can weigh up to about 230 pounds (106 kg).

It is the largest bear species and is native to the Sichuan and Yunnan provinces in China. Although it was first described in 1766, the animal was not scientifically identified as a bear until the 1880s.

luropoda melanoleuca

luropoda melanoleuca (A.m.melanoleuca), also known as the giant red panda (lurine) is the largest member of the bear family Ursidae. The giant panda is native to China and has lived on the mnland for more than 2,000,000 years. The name giant panda is not currently used, although panda and giant panda are frequently used interchangeably to refer to it. The giant panda was known to the Chinese as xiongdeng or xiongdeng. In Tibetan and in English it is known as ganze. Its native name, as found on a 2,000 year old stone at the Mogao caves near Dunhuang, is the Tibetan kyi dzod, dzod is usually translated as ‘bear’.

The Giant Panda is considered a symbol of good luck in China. For example, the red panda is also a symbol of good fortune, and is sd to appear wherever there is a safe place to live and good food. (See: Chinese symbols of luck) It has long been considered a luck symbol by Chinese Buddhists, who regard it as a Buddhist animal. The Tibetan word dzod means ‘bear’, but more broadly ‘wild beast’ or ‘cub’. It is possible that the animal seen in the Mogao caves was simply a red panda cub, though it is unclear whether the animal in the Mogao caves represents the same species as the one in the caged bears at the Beijing Zoo.

Beneath the name panda are more than ten other names: (1) the red panda (luropoda melanoleuca), (2) the golden panda (luropoda aureli), (3) the golden-crowned panda (luropoda integra), (4) the black and white panda (luropoda melanoleuca var melanoleuca), (5) the Javan panda (luropoda brevirostris), (6) the Javan tiger panda (luropoda brevirostris), (7) the Javan bear (luropoda melanoleuca), (8) the Philippine panda (luropoda nigra), (9) the Sulawesi bear (luropoda melanoleuca melanoleuca), and (10) the Sumatran bear (luropoda melanoleuca melanoleuca).

Although some of the other names are not often used, there is no official ruling on this. The red panda is, however, the most well-known of these names and is commonly used to refer to the animal. Some, however, consider the red panda to be a form of panda, and not a true panda.
