Red pandas are highly communicative and use a variety of chirps, huffs, grunts, and twitters to communicate. They also communicate via their tails; when stressed or threatened, they will stand on their hind legs to appear larger and scarier.

Red pandas are considered omnivorous. In addition to their bamboo-heavy diet, they also eat roots, small bird eggs, insects, and fruits.

Red pandas are arboreal, meaning they live primarily in the trees. They are also crepuscular, meaning they are most active at dusk and dawn.

The gestation period for a red panda runs around 132-134 days, and their litter sizes can range from 1-4 cubs.

Most red pandas live an average of 12-14 years but have been known to live as long as 25 years. Red pandas are considered endangered.

Most adult red pandas grow to be between 7.5-20 pounds, measuring from nose to tail tip around 35-42 inches.  Their tails are roughly between 15-19 inches long.
