We call them a bear but they are closer to a raccoon,
Their face is as round as a completely full moon.
They spend most of the day sitting and eating,
They’re so shy that if you approach them they’ll be retreating.

If you picked giant panda you’re right.  A giant panda is among the rarest and shyest animals in the world.  While it resembles a bear, it is actually closer to the raccoon family.  Normally solitary, they spend most of their days eating, mostly bamboo shoots and other leaves.  They have protruding wrist bones that act like thumbs.
