Panda Claw Thumb

Pandas have totally six toes if the special sixth “toe” is counted. But as a matter of fact, that radical small bone is not technically a toe; it’s more of a fake thumb grown from their wrists. The sixth toe is mainly used to pick, grasp and feed food especially the bamboo.

On the tip of their fingers/toes, they do have milk-white sharp claw. These claws enable them to climb trees easily.
