More info: Red pandas were at first classified as relatives of raccoons in the Procyonidae family, due to physical similarities, such as the head, teeth and ringed tail. Later, because of some DNA similarities, they were classified as bears in the Ursidae family but more recent genetic research now places them in their own family, Ailuridae.

Red pandas have large round heads and short snouts with large, pointed ears. Their coats are reddish-brown, although their faces are mostly white with reddish 'tear tracks' extending from their eyes to the corner of their mouths. Red pandas have long, bushy tails with alternating red and white rings. The tail helps them maintain their balance when climbing trees. They are similar in size to a domestic cat.
