Red pandas can be easily identified by their unique ruddy coat color, which acts like camouflage within the canopy of fir trees where branches are covered with clumps of reddish-brown moss and white lichens.
They have large, round heads and short snouts with big, pointed ears. Their faces are white with reddish-brown “tear” marks that extend from the eyes to the corner of the mouth. These markings could have evolved to help keep the sun out of their eyes. Their tails are marked with alternating red and buff rings.
Red pandas have a soft, dense woolly undercoat covered by long, coarse guard hairs. Long, bushy tails help these arboreal animals maintain balance and protect them from harsh cold and winds. Dense fur completely covers their feet which have five, widely separated toes and semi-retractable claws.
Red panda likes solitary life and is active at night or in the twilight. IUCN has declared red panda as vulnerable due to human beings who hunt them down and destroy their home.
Red pandas are protected by the governments of countries within their habitat range. In all these countries, the hunting of red pandas is illegal.
International conservation and wildlife organizations raise funds, educate the public, conduct research, and create legislation for the protection and conservation of red pandas. Red Pandas are granted protection under CITES (Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora) which is an international agreement between governments to ensure the international trade of wild animals and plants does not threaten their survival.
