Dublin Zoo asked its visitors which animal was their favourite and guess who came out on top - red pandas!
Red pandas are one of the few animals on earth that can descend from heights head-first!
Red pandas can only digest about 24% of the bamboo they eat, meaning they need to eat a lot of it. They also feed selectively on the most nutritious leaf tips and tender shoots in order to maximise the amount of energy they get from it.
Red pandas use their big bushy tails for balance as they move from branch to branch. They also wrap it around themselves for warmth during the cold winter months.
They have a modified wrist bone that functions almost like a thumb. This greatly helps them grasp bamboo when feeding.
