The red panda is an elusive and mysterious mammal of the biodiverse Himalayan forests. They have also been called the “Firefox”, “Lesser Panda”, and “Red-Cat-Bear”— the red panda has many nicknames.
Red pandas are crepuscular, arboreal and solitary. They are most active in the early morning and late afternoon (crepuscular) spending most of the day resting in trees (arboreal) conserving their energy.
Red pandas are normally solitary creatures but come together in pairs in the breeding season.
