No, panda's are bears. There used to be a bit of an issue as to whether they were "true" bears, but that's been settled. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Panda#Classification

I have problems with that... Thinking something happened and then finding out I dreamed it. But it was so real! Luckily, it has a low chance of happening because normally my dreams are too weird to EVER come true.

Giant pandas have recently be classed as bears. And the red panda is in a family of its own, but deemed closer to racoons than the giant panda.
