The Cuddly Red Panda!

I know it's been a while since my last post, but I was away from the internet, computers, telephones, electric heat, and even running water in a cozy house overlooking the ocean. I went snowshoeing (just like an Arctic Hare) and even saw bunny tracks and bunny poo (probably from Snowshoe Hares).

My next cute animal can also be found around snow, like those snow bunnies. It likes  to live in China (like its relative, the Giant Panda) and around the Himalayas. It also likes to munch on bamboo, like the Giant Panda. If there's no bamboo around or the Red Panda wants a break from eating only bamboo, it will snack on eggs, insects, birds, or little mammals.

Unlike the Giant Panda, Red Pandas are really little, just a tiny bit bigger than a kitty cat! Red Pandas have long fuzzy tails and short little limbs. Their striped tails help them camoflage with their environment.

When it's hot outside the Red Panda likes to nap with its short little fuzzy limbs hanging over a tree branch!

Red Pandas are pretty quiet. Sometimes they make cute little whistling noises.

P.S: I almost forgot about this hilarious and cute Red Panda video about a girl living with two Red Pandas!

  1. Are you sure you didn't see cuddly red panda tracks while you were snowshoeing? I heard pandas rarely use the internet, telephones and electric heat, but what were those little whistling noises you heard on the trail?
