Can a panda be treated as a pet?
Giant pandas are listed as Endangered by the IUCN and thus cannot be kept as pets. Red pandas are listed as Vulnerable by the IUCN and therefore cannot be kept as pets either. Neither species should be treated as a pet.
No, you can not have a pet panda. Even zoos have to get special permission from China to have a panda and they are only on loan. They are an endangered animal. If you want to watch a panda go to the San Diego Zoo web cam for the panda exhibit in the zoo and you can see them. Get a stuffed panda or give a donation to the World Wild Life.
