The place where Tare's past is dug out.

Tare Panda, also known as " Xiong Mao Pa Pa" in chinese. Pa Pa, meaning lying around and also very flat .Xiong Mao, meaning panda. As for Tare Panda, it literally means Panda looking listless in Japanese. This is how its name is written in Chinese-->and in Japanese-->.

.... Born in Japan 1995, Tare Panda become very popular in Japan and could be seen on many daily products such as stationarys etc. He was also warmly welcomed especially by the Japanese working people as many claimed that just by looking at Tare made them feel better. Finally, Tare gained so much fame that it had its own cartoon show. 

.... It is usually 3-5 cm in length although sometimes even bigger. As its name goes, Tare Panda is as lazy as can be. So lazy that he doesn't even walk, he rolls!And at a speed of 2.75m/h,at that rate, I doubt he can get anywhere in a day. 

Tare Pandas also like to travel together in one direction(at a snail like pace of course) or simply sit one on top of another forming one big pile of Tare Pandas. Sometimes one of them looses its balance and the whole group topples down like a tarepanda avalanche disaster.

By the way, Tare likes to eat a fruit called Swama*ahem* I don't know what it is either. Can someone tell me? According to Veronica it is a snack called mochi without any fillings. Anymore ideas? Email me through me email form.
