These animals are native to the temperate forests of the Himalayas, stretching from Nepal to China, where they spend most of their time in trees.

Interesting Facts about Red Panda

Red pandas are solitary animals, mainly active at dawn and dusk. They have a unique adaptation in their wrist bone, functioning as a thumb, which helps them grasp bamboo shoots and leaves. Interestingly, red pandas communicate using a variety of sounds, including whistles, twitters, and squeals. Despite their small size, they can be quite agile, using their long, bushy tails for balance as they navigate the treetops. Due to habitat loss, poaching, and the pet trade, red pandas are considered endangered, making conservation efforts critical for their survival.
