Behaviour and Personalities

Pandas are neutral towards the players, which means they will only attack when hurt by the player. They are also attracted towards bamboo and Cake, and will follow the players if they are holding one.

They are also very playful and jump and roll around whenever possible. They are also really scared of the thunder and whimper during a thunderstorm. These lovable creatures are also the favourite among villagers as they do not like when players attack pandas.

Panda Breeding

Pandas can be bred by having at least eight bamboo blocks around the panda. This condition is only unique to the pandas. Players can then feed them bamboo to make them breed.

Panda babies also have DNA structures and the dominant genes are normal, aggressive, lazy, worried and playful. These genes take priority while breeding. Therefore, to get Weak or Brown pandas, players need to breed to weak genes.
