Pandas also huff and growl like a dog, but don't roar like a lion.

i think it sounds like a dolphin/monkey.

Dolphins and monkeys sound very different!

Dolphins squeak. Monkeys ooh ooh and ah ah. 

yeah, well, that's why i had to blend them with a slash!  ;)

Cool. I wonder what sound a monkey ON a dolphin makes.

monkey on a dolphin

Sounds like Aesop.

Yeah, I've discovered that not every Aesop is a winner. Too bad, this one had a decent setup.

WWF says:

Pandas are usually quiet and solitary animals, but they may use a variety of sounds to communicate to each other. They may squeak, growl, bark and huff.

Pandas International says:

Pandas can make 11 distinct vocalizations. This indicates highly evolved communications, which allow them to communicate with other pandas. Their vocalizations can convey many emotions including distress, pain or friendship. A bark is used to ward off an enemy.

Cubs make a very loud squeaky cry.

San Diego Zoo says:

Pandas make a bleating sound similar to the sound a lamb or a goat kid would make. It's a friendly sound, a greeting. They don't roar, the way you think of a brown bear roaring. But they do bleat and honk, they sometimes huff, bark, or growl, and young cubs croak and squeal.

The U.S. National Zoo says:

Pandas vocalize extensively in social interactions. They "chirp" during mating and "honk" in distress. A "bleat" (a twittering goat sound) is a friendly contact call. A "chomp" (a rapid opening and closing of the mouth so the teeth audibly meet) is a mild defensive threat. A "bark" is used to scare an enemy. A squeal indicates submission or pain.

What the panda say?

Evil black eyes
Rubber nose
Sleeping all day
Lazy and fat
Razor claws
Up a tree 
Suddenly you eat bamboo
black and white
So soft and cute
Fat devil in disguise
If you meet a tasty dog
Will you communicate by
smo o o o og, o o o o og, o o o o o og
How will you speak to that do o o o og o o o o og o o o o og COUGH?
What will you say?

You say you want an EVEN WORSE parody?
