ABout Red Panda

THE RED PANDA IS KNOWN FOR ITS BUSHY RINGED TAIL, REDDISH-BROWN COAT, AND WADDLING GAIT.

They are only distantly related to the better known black and white panda. These creatures are very well adapted to colder climates. Red pandas use their fluffy tails to wrap up in during winters in the mountains, and they even have fur on the pads of their feet to help keep them warm.
