Panda Handshake

Do pandas have thumbs? They do (sort of)! The front paws of a Giant Panda are very different from other bears due to a special bone found in their wrists. Their sixth toe, an opposable thumb, is used for grasping bamboo — a habit the exercise quite often on the live cams. They use this bone in the same way humans use their thumbs, mainly for grasping food.
