Red Panda

The red panda (Ailurus fulgens, or shining-cat), is a small arboreal mammal native to the eastern Himalayas and southwestern China. It is the only species of the genus Ailurus.
Slightly larger than a domestic cat, it has reddish-brown fur, a long, shaggy tail, and a waddling gait due to its shorter front legs.
It feeds mainly on bamboo, but is omnivorous and may also eat eggs, birds, insects, and small mammals.
It is a solitary animal, mainly active from dusk to dawn, and is largely sedentary during the day.
