You'll love this image of two adorable little red pandas snuggling on a branch.
Much tinier than the black and white giant we generally associate with the name panda, red pandas are about the size of a housecat, weighing in at around 11 pounds as an adult. The red panda lives around 8-11 years in captivity.
Red pandas are known as being much easier to breed in captivity than their giant cousins, but are still in danger as their natural habitat is being destroyed. They are native to the bamboo forests of China and the Himalayas. A red panda loves eating delicious bamboo shoots, and also will sometimes eat small animals like rodents & insects. Because they are a carnivore with a carnivore's tummy, they have to eat huge quantities of bamboo to live off it. Red Pandas are also called the "lesser panda".
