Kalanchoe tomentosa, also known as Panda Plant, is a species of Kalanchoe that is extra fuzzy to aid in its succulent abilities. The fuzz acts as a sun blocker, to help dim the amount of sunlight that hits the plant. This helps it to cool down and prevent cellular damage from overexposure from the sun. The fuzz also blocks the wind from blowing against the plant directly, preventing water loss. Its hairs also help the plant blend into its environment to prevent death by herbivory (being eaten by animals!). The hairs make dark brown stripes which grow in an irregular pattern to further camouflage the plant from its herbivore predators.
