Red Panda

Posted By Angela Astorini, Monday, June 2, 2008

The Red Panda is native to southeast Asia along a cresant formed by the Himalaya Mountains. Red Pandas are cavity nesters, using rock dens and old hollow trees. They often spend the day drooped over a branch high in the trees, feeding more actively at dawn and dusk. The Red Panda eats mostly bamboo. Like the Giant Panda,it cannot digest cellulose, so it must consume a large volume of bamboo to survive.Red Pandas are classified as endangered. No reliable numbers exist for the total population but it is very threatened due to the fragmentation of its natural habitats, their small numbers, and their food specialization needs. In southwest China the Red Panda is hunted for its fur and especially for its highly-valued bushy tail from which hats are produced.
