#3 Red Panda

Size: 20 – 25 in. (50 – 64 cm.)

Tail size: 11 – 20 in. (28 – 50 cm.)

Weight 6 ½ – 13 lb. (3 – 6 kg.)

The red panda is not a RED PANDA, it is another relative of the raccoon. Red pandas are nocturnal. (Sleep during the day, awake during the night.) They have retractable claws that help them climb tall trees, where they spend most of their time. Red pandas climb trees to escape predators and for females to nest in. Red pandas are found in South to Southeast Asia. I first saw red pandas (Like the Okapi)  in the game Zoo Tycoon 2.
