INTERNATIONAL RED PANDA DAY FACTS
During the third Saturday in September, International Red Panda Day dedicates a day to learning about about red pandas. Join the campaign to raise awareness about saving their habitats.
Red pandas are much smaller than the more familiar black and white pandas. In fact, red pandas are not related to giant pandas at all. Red pandas weigh between 12 to 20 pounds, which is about the size of a housecat. These adorable mammals live in the trees of the Himalaya Mountains. The Red panda’s popularity in Asia features them in cartoons and as team mascots. However, only about 10,000 red pandas live in the wild. Because of deforestation, poaching, and the illegal pet trade, red pandas are endangered.
Here are some fun facts about red pandas:
Their fur is the color of cinnamon and keeps them warm in cold climates.
Red pandas eat mostly bamboo.
They were discovered in 1825, before the giant panda.
Other names for the red panda include bear-cat, firefox, and Himalayan raccoon.
Although they resemble raccoons, they have no living relatives.
