Artist's Description

This is a beautiful red panda. A group of Redbubblers met up at Bristol Zoo on 18 Jan 09. We had great fun. Isn’t he lovely?

Red pandas look more like raccoons than their closest relative – the giant panda. They are secretive and gentle creatures, spending most of the day sleeping curled up with their tail wrapped around their head.

Red pandas live in southern Asia: Bhutan, China, India, Lao Peoples Democratic Republic, Myanmar, Nepal. They inhabit forested mountain slopes.
They mainly feed on bamboo, but also eat acorns, roots, berries, lichens and occasionally eggs and young birds.

Red pandas lead solitary lives, except for mothers with cubs. They are slow-moving on the ground but are remarkably agile in the trees

The IUCN classify red pandas as Endangered, and they are on CITES: Appendix I. They are protected in Nepal and China. Habitat loss is thought to be the major reason for their decline in the wild.
