The Red Panda has evolved to feed almost exclusively on bamboo. Individuals must spend a great deal of time eating just to maintain their bodyweight.
Sadly, Red Panda's are declining as a result of deforestation, increased agriculture, hunting and pressure from growing human populations.
The Red Pandas are being hunted by humans for their fur (to make hats) and they are also killed when caught in traps meant for other animals such as deer.
The Red Panda's biggest threat is humans!!!!
Their habitat is being cut down for wood, which is used as fuel. Increased agriculture means farmers need more land for their animals so they are clearing the land.
