Red pandas are acrobatic animals that predominantly stay in trees. They are classed as endangered and are under threat from habitat loss, illegal trade and poaching. Almost 50 percent of the red panda’s habitat is in the Eastern Himalayas. They can be found in Bhutan, China, India, Myanmar and Nepal. Fewer than 10,000 Red Pandas are thought to remain in the wild.
