Red Pandas live in south-west China and survives off the leaves of the bamboo trees in the dense bamboo forests that are scattered across that area.
Red Pandas are extremely hard to classify. They've previously been classified with bear and raccoon families, but fossil evidence shows otherwise. Fossil evidence shows that Red Pandas are closely affiliated with the Procyonidae, which is a class of Carnivora, including raccoons, but still isn't similar enough to be classified with them. Aliuridae was formed. Aliuridae is a class for Red Pandas and their extinct ancestors alone.
