The Red Panda is a beautiful, little creature native to the eastern Himalayas and southwestern China. This mammal is just slightly larger than the average domestic cat and it’s easily recognized by its thick red/russet colored fur, long and very bushy tail, and bear-like body.
Red pandas are also commonly referred to as lesser panda in deference to the much larger giant panda. These are very acrobatic animals with expert tree-climbing skills.
It is arboreal (lives predominantly in trees), typically solitary, and mostly active from dusk to dawn.
