Bamboo is the fastest-growing woody plant on Earth. It’s as durable as hardwood, even though the plant is technically in the grass family.

Bamboo comprises up to 99 percent of the giant panda’s diet. And because of bamboo’s relatively low nutritional value, a single panda can spend up to 16 hours a day eating as much as 40 pounds of the stuff. Yum!
