The red panda from Schleich® Wild Life has a striped tail, red-brown fur, and powerful paws with sharp claws. The red panda is a small mammal that lives in the eastern Himalayas and south-west China. It eats mainly bamboo. In the same way as the red panda from Schleich® Wild Life, at first glance, the animal looks like a cross between a raccoon, a fox, and a cat. And despite its name, it isn’t a panda. A new animal family was created for the red panda, with the scientific name Ailurus.
