Can you play as a Panda on a Trial Account?

General Discussion
So i brought my laptop to my parents place for the weekend and my 14 year old little brother is currious of WoW, Im thinking or Recruiting Him... Before i do that i want him to test it out with the Trial... My question is that he seen me playing as panda and had asked me, if i created him an trial account can he play as a panda?

I wasnt sure what the trial accounts offer, are you able to play as a panda? and does the trial account only last up to 30 days? because if i recall i remember last checking that you can play your trial account until the character hits 20... is that no longer true?

what else is required for the trial account?
Yeah, you can play panda. 5.0.4 made it so you don't need the expansion for each race
I'm pretty sure you can.
If trial accounts could roll blood elves and draenei, i don't see why not.

Plus, I ran into a trial dude the other day. He was a worgen.
Yes, but the panda can't be a monk.
As far as I know Blizzard stated that even if you just have a basic battlechest that you can play every race, just not every class.

Don't quote me on that because it's been awhile since I've read that. I can go look up the post that explains it if you need me to.
You can play any race. The only classes that are restricted are Death Knights and Monks.

The trial lasts forever, but he can only go up to level 20.
He is limited to /say, /party and I believe /yell.
He can only party when invited, but he cannot invite.
He can't join guilds, talk in /general, or /trade, nor can he use the Auction House or Mail.
He can only have up to 10g per character.
He can only reply to whispers, and can only whisper those who have added him to their friends list.
He can only go up to 100 skill points in any of the professions.

Those are the limitations off the top of my head.

You can keep making different characters and leveling them to 20 but the character that has hit level 20 will no longer gain xp if or when you upgrade to full.

Okey dokey then :) Thanks for looking up that piece o info for me, appreciate it :)
"Before we got MoP, we rolled two pandas, the only thing was they couldn't be Monks. So yes, kind of."
Oh, I didn't look anything up :P. I just know the trials really well.
