Despite its name, the red panda is more closely related to animals like skunks and raccoons than it is to the giant panda. Endemic to the eastern Himalayas and southern China, the red panda is a solitary animal and the only living member of the family Ailuridae and the genus Ailurus.
Scientific Name: Ailurus fulgens
Characteristics: Make sure that this red panda figurine doesn’t lay claim to your desk or night stand – they’re known to be very territorial! Like all of our figurines, this red panda has been painted and molded with the utmost accuracy, and is sure to please even the pickiest nature enthusiast.
Size and Color: 4.3 inches long and 1.5 inches tall, this figurine is a touch smaller than a soda can resting on its side. As their name suggests, red pandas have primarily reddish-brown fur, black legs and black markings on their tail, and a pattern of white fur on their face.

Unfortunately, the red panda has been classified as an endangered species for nearly a decade. Currently, there are an estimated 10,000 individuals globally, and that number is believed to be decreasing. The primary threats to the red panda are poaching and a loss of their natural habitat due to deforestation and fragmentation. Thankfully, the red panda is protected by law in every region in which they’re found. They are also capable of living in captivity, and as a result many infant red pandas have been safely birthed in zoos and sanctuaries around the world!
