Panda Bears are closely related to other bears,
but they are also related to raccoons.
Scientists have used DNA to find out that
the giant panda is more closely related to
other bears than to the raccoons.
pandas are in the family Ursidae with the seven
other bear species. Raccoons are in the family
Procyonidae, along with ring-tails and coatis.
Scientists will have to keep working to find new
information to figure out if that is where they
belong. That is how science works. We keep
trying to get more information and keep our
minds open for new answers.
