Panda is a plant genus of the family Pandaceae. It contains only one known species, Panda oleosa, native to western and central Africa (Liberia, Ghana, Guinea, Ivory Coast, Nigeria, Cabinda, Gabon, Central African Republic, Congo-Brazzaville, Cameroon, Zaire).[1][2][3][4][5][6][7]

Chimpanzees have been observed to hammer on the nuts of Panda oleosa, which are particularly hard to open.
