Opposable Thumb Things

This is, according to the eldest, what Pandas have in place of a regular sixth digit. They have, she knowledgeably informed me, developed something approximating to the hands of a primate (with that sixth thumb thing which would have seen them tried as witches in Essex in the 17th century).

That’s nice darling, I said, remarking additionally what a marvellous thing evolution is. She then said she thought bamboo was a bit tough to eat, even with two opposable thumb things on the case.

There was no answer to this except that perhaps Pandas also carry a Swiss Army knife.
