The Red Panda is an omnivore with an absolute preference for bamboo shoots, supplemented with roots, fruits, eggs and small prey (insects, birds and small mammals).

They feel most at home in the bamboo forests (2000 to 4000 m) of Nepal and Burma.

The animal loves to rest on a thick branch, flat on its stomach, with its legs dangling on both sides. Its feet are hairy to make sure that it does not slip on wet branches or on ice.
