Belonging to the order carnivore and family Ailuridae, Red Panda are from the mountainous regions of the world. (Ailurus fulgens) red panda is a native species of panda family found in Himalayan mountain range of different countries including Nepal, Bhutan, China, Laos and Myanmar. The red panda is slightly larger in size than of a cat and its body is covered with brown color hair with black and white lines. The legs and body have brown color and black patches. Like body, legs contain smooth fur, which gives it protection against severe cold weather and Himalayan heights. Initially it was recognized as belonging to raccoon family, however later research identified them belonging to the panda clan.

The red panda mostly feed on bamboos and spent whole day travelling in search of food. It mostly eats leaves, twigs and soft branches of bamboo. Red pandas also hunt other foodstuff like rats, eggs, fungus and small animals. The animal is solitary and likes to live alone. During the mating season, both male and females come in contact and females ensure its mating by keeping more than one partners. After mating female take a gestation period of more than 4 months. A female red panda gives birth to around 4 cubs each weighing 100 to 130 grams. Cubs when born are weak. They live with their mothers milk for 6 to 8 months. After that, they start leaving their homes becoming independent and searching for food on their own. The average life span of this panda is 12 to 14 years.

Due to limited habitat and changing weather patterns, the number of red panda is estimated to be less than 10,000 adults and is categorized as a vulnerable to extinction specie. Due to extensive deforestation and hunting, red panda have decreased a lot in the past few years. For this reason, various international organizations for preservation of wildlife are keen to ensure their safeguard. Still the number of this animal is on decline.
