  • Fun Facts about Red Pandas

    Like the giant panda, red pandas also have a pseudo-thumb, which is actually a modified wrist bone used to grip bamboo. 

    Diet & habits

    The red panda eats bamboo but will also eat eggs, roots, acorns and fruits.

    Red pandas like to spend their days sleeping in the tall trees and like to go hunting for food in the hours of dusk and dawn, but are most active at night.

    Where can they be found in the wild?

    The red panda can be found high in the forests of Nepal and Northern Myanmar as well as in central China, it has a wider range than the giant panda and prefers a rainy habitat.

    No bigger than the size of a cat!

    Very small in size compared to the black and white giant panda, the red panda grows to about the size of a house cat but add to their size with their big bushy tail which can measure up to 18inches long.
