What are Red Pandas?
  • 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.
