Caption: Red panda (Ailurus fulgens). The red panda is found in mountainous forests in China, north- eastern India and Nepal. It reaches a length of around 1 metre, and feeds almost exclusively on bamboo leaves, although it also takes small rodents, small birds and birds' eggs. When it is not feeding, it spends most of its time in trees, and is an accomplished climber thanks to its sharp claws. It is nocturnal, spending the day curled up in branches or a tree hollow. A solitary animal, it meets others only to mate, but the young may stay with their mother for over a year. The red panda is most often classified as a member of the raccoon family.
