Red Pandas are commonly found in the Eastern Himalayan region, much of which is in China. Red Pandas often live in nesting trees, and their population has declined as their forest homes have been cleared. They are currently endangered, but are protected in the following countries: China, India, Bhutan, Nepal and Myanmar.

Red Pandas can become dormant in very cold temperatures, lowering their metabolic rate, and then increasing it hours later to search for food. Red Pandas primarily eat bamboo, but may eat other grasses, shrubs, insects or small mammals.
