  • - [Narrator] This is wicket, a red panda.

  • At 10 years old, Wicket is a fully grown male

  • with a height of just over two feet

  • or slightly larger than your average house cat.

  • As cute as he is, his population has decreased dramatically,

  • with less than 10,000 left in the wild.

  • (upbeat music)

  • Red panda in name, it is not closely related

  • to the giant panda, but actually closer

  • to the raccoon family.

  • He loves to eat bamboo,

  • but won't turn down the occasional bird,

  • insect or mammal for a snack.

  • Native to the eastern Himalayas and southwestern China,

  • red pandas live in trees and are nimble, agile climbers.

  • Their reddish brown fur and bushy tails camouflage them

  • in their habitat from predators, like snow leopards.

  • Besides other animals, humans pose a major threat,

  • poaching and hunting them for their fur.

  • The forests that they live in are shrinking fast,

  • and estimates say that their population has been cut in half

  • in the last 20 years.

  • This is the red panda.

- [Narrator] This is wicket, a red panda.
