Red pandas are about the size of a house cat and use their bushy tails as a blanket to wrap themselves within the cold climate.

Red pandas live in the mountains of Nepal, northern Myanmar, and central China.

Red pandas stay mostly in trees. They eat bamboo, fruit, acorns, roots, and eggs.

Red pandas stay solitary except during mating season. Females can give birth to up to four young at a time, and they stay with their mother in the nest for 90 days.

Red pandas are thought to be related to either giant pandas or raccoons.

Red pandas are endangered because of deforestation of their habitat for logging and agriculture.
