The Red Panda

The Red Panda is considered as a vulnerable species by the IUCN (International Union for Conservation of Nature).
The Red Pandas are largely distributed in the north-eastern part of Himalayas and also in Arunachal Pradesh. The Red Panda marks its territory with urine, dropping and powerful secretions from the glands on foreskin and paws. Other Red Pandas pretty much detect these smells not by scent but by taste. Communication between the species happens through a wide repertoire of squeaks and whistles. It is also interesting to note that this animal consumes only fresh bamboo leaves that are found on the base of the stalk. They do not eat the stalk per se, as the Giant Panda of China does.
