Red panda - Eurasia - Montane forest

Red panda (Ailurus fulgens)
Like the giant panda, this shy carnivore is a bamboo grazer unique to the cool montane forests of China, Nepal, and Burma. Red pandas sleep in the trees by day and spend their nights searching for bamboo. Their small size and distinctive markings resemble the raccoon’s, and they were once thought to be related. But red pandas are now believed to be in their own family—the Ailuridae.
