Red Pandas

Red Pandas are fluffy, bright, independent animals. They are relatives of the Giant Panda and raccoon. They baffled scientists, giving them their own unique family, the Ailuridae.

We love to play!

Red Pandas eat a lot. They like bamboo but unlike their black and white relatives they will eat a variety of other foods. They like fruit, acorns, roots, and eggs.
