Red Panda

More from Nordens Ark. This is the little Red Panda (Ailurus fulgens). Also known as the lesser panda. Native in southwestern China and eastern Himalayas bamboo forests. Bamboo shoots and leaves are the favourite food. Quite small between 50 and 60 centimetres, weighing 3 to 6 kilos. The Red Panda is considered to be an endangered species. Even if the name suggests so, they are not related to the larger Giant Panda.

Even the small counts, ha de Gött!
