Living Fossils - Red Panda
Red pandas are small arboreal mammals of the genus Ailurus, and are the only extant species (Ailurus fulgens) in said genus. The red panda is slightly larger than a domestic cat, looks a bit like a red raccoon, and waddles because it’s front legs are shorter than the back legs. It feeds mostly on bamboo, but is omnivorous, eating birds, eggs, insects, and small mammals. It is mainly nocturnal, and, much like tumblr users, leads a very sedentary lifestyle in the day. It used to be classified with raccoons, and then bears, but is now seperated into it’s own family, Ailuridae.
