PEACEFUL FURRY RED PANDA

There is no time to be bored in a world as beautiful as this. While travelling the eastern states of India I came across a beautiful cute animal called RED PANDA.

Red Panda is a small, largely arboreal mammal (Scientific name: Ailurus fulgens) that resembles the American raccoon, that is native to the temperate forests from eastern Himalayas to south-western China. It has reddish brown furry bear like body and is slightly larger than a domestic cat. It is listed as endangered on the IUCN Red list because the wild population is estimated at fewer than 10000 mature individuals. This population continues to decline due to habitat loss and poaching.

It is a solitary animal mainly active from dusk to dawn and is largely sedentary during the day. They are generally quiet, but subtle vocalisations, such as squeals, twitters and huff quacks can be heard at close proximity. It was formerly considered a family of the Giant Panda but is now considered more closely related to Racoons.

Red Panda’s are skilful acrobatic animals that predominantly stay in trees. Almost 50 percent of the Red Panda’s habitat is in eastern Himalayas. The Red Panda feeds mostly on Bamboo, roots, grass, leaves, fruit, acorns, eggs, insects and small animals (such as birds). They do little more than eat and sleep due to low calorie diets.
