Giant Panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca)

Giant Panda (Ailuropoda melanoleuca)_12

We are told that big, sharp, pointy teeth mean that the animal is a meat eater and that long, flat, teeth means they eat plants.

For contemporary animals, we can easily identify the exceptions to the rule but, barring fossilized stomach contents, it’s much harder to know about ancient extinct species.

So take a few minutes and visualize a tyrannosaurus rex as it hunts it’s native prey … celery.
