Not too bad. Made me think for a moment. More please?

Well, the polygon and the square reference did a good job misdirecting us to consider geometrical objects. But using the square with its four equal sides is misleading since only two sides are involved with the palindrome. It doesn't have all its sides equal like the square. Since many things are symmetrical the answer could have been panda or planarian.
