The world of "Minecraft" have started off as a secluded and lonely place that is only inhabited by the player and mobs that are determined on ruining your good time in the game, but over the years, a massive range of wildlife was added to the environment to make the world of the game more alive.
Many of these wildlife creatures were surprising, like ocelots, parrots and turtles, but one of the most interesting and rarest wildlife is the panda.
It won't be quite as difficult to find a panda in "Minecraft" as it would be in real life, but it is still quite a difficult creature to track down if you do not know where to look.
Where to find pandas in the game
Pandas are one of the rarest animal mobs to locate in "Minecraft". Pandas are neutral towards the player upon the first meeting, so unless you do something to make them react or angry, you won't have to worry about them attacking you.
What makes pandas so difficult to find is two fold. First, pandas only appear in either jungle or bamboo jungle biomes, with the latter being slightly more common location.
Once you locate the rare biomes, you then have to wait till a very elusive panda spawns there. Pandas either spawn alone or in pairs, but they never show up more than that number.
The pandas can either be the normal black and white color, which are the type of pandas that we are used to, or in very rare cases they are brown and white. While it is still not known what the exact rate of the pandas are in the game, it is recorded that only 5% of them will spawn as babies.
What is also known is that, aside from being in the right biome, pandas only spawn on the surface, usually on grass blocks with at least two blocks of height above them, and it is done at a light level of a least nine. Once you find a suitable location, you can begin exploring and hope for the best.
What to do with the pandas
The main thing that you will probably want to do with pandas is befriend them and breed them. Unlike the other wildlife animals in the game, and mimicking real life, pandas are not easy to breed and it is not just giving them the right food, there are more actions that you need to do.
Pandas can only enter love mode if there are at least eight or more bamboo blocks placed within five blocks of them and another panda. Once you have this type of environment set up, you need to feed both pandas some bamboo just like how you feed any other animal to make them fall in love and eventually mate.
If you feed a panda without the much needed eight or more bamboo blocks nearby, they will simply eat the bamboo. But if you feed one panda while it is near another, again without the eight blocks nearby, then they will become hostile and they will attack you.
The safest way that you can start a little panda family in the game is to find a panda, or more if you are lucky. You can either lure the pandas back to your base with bamboo or you can lead them so you can set up the right conditions for breeding.
