Character: Very quiet of nature(actually because talking makes it very tired), that's why is likes to just lay down and stare listlessly.
Weird facts: If Tares like you a lot, they will pile up into a "Tare Mountain", one on top of the other. If it just an ordinary liking, they will lean on each other(weird). If it doesn't like you at all, it will show you it's rear end!
Stats: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. Or he will wiggle here or there, any way but use it's legs to walk.
Tare's Faves: By the way, Tare likes to eat a fruit called Swama. At night it will sneak in and steal the fruit(swama is the only reason it is willing to move, lazy!) Click here to see the recipe.
