Red pandas are omnivorous mammals, about the size of a cat.
Red pandas are distantly related to the giant panda, along with the Raccoon, meaning Red Pandas have a family of their own. The Red Panda is also called the Lesser Panda and the Red Cat-Bear in their native habitats and the Fire Fox in Nepal.
The Red Panda lives in the mild forests of the Himalayas as high as 1,800 to 4,000 meters. These high mountain slopes have deciduous hardwood forests with a bamboo under-storey that is crucial in the Red Panda lifestyle.
Often caught in traps or killed for their distinctive red pelts, red pandas are an extremely endangered species
Suffering intense habitat loss, there are estimated less than 3000 left
They can only eat bamboo until they are old enough for other foods . they reach their full adult size after about a year but there is, however, a high chance, an unfortunate 80%, that young Red Pandas will not reach full adulthood.
