This is the "other panda", not the easily recognizable black-and-white kind. Red Panda is cuter than a cat, has a luxurious tail, resembles both a fox and a raccoon, and is considered by many to be a living fossil. Only 2,500 individual animals can be found around the world, most in Asia (in Tibet), in well-known zoos, and a "select" few as fashionable Japanese pets. In China the Red Panda is also sometimes known as "Fire Fox", a familiar name to everyone who uses the internet.
