Drusillas Park Zoo Animals:Photos of Red Pandas
About Red Pandas
Most smart people will probably be viewing this web page using a version of Chrome (my personal favourite) or Firefox (a close second!). Why is that relevant? I always used to have really funny mental images when I would get a message saying Firefox has crashed, because the name Firefox comes from the nickname for Red Pandas!
As well as Firefox they have a few other names depending where you are, most commonly the Lesser Panda and Red Bear-Cat. I have always loved Red Pandas, they are only about the size of a cat, but they are just so cute!!!
Sadly Red Pandas are on the International Union for Conservation of Nature IUCN red list as Endangered and they think there are less than ten thousand left in the entire world! :'( I have heard of people having a Red Panda as a pet, but that is very bad! They should be in the wild as much as possible, but I don't mind limited numbers of them in zoos as long as they are well treated, have plenty of space and somewhere they can hide from the public.
I used to do unpaid work at Drusillas as a volunteer(mostly with the Ring Tailed Lemurs), I do often miss it, but I am just not well enough these days.

The animals there do change from time to time, so if you want to see an animal I have photographed then please check if they are still there as these photos were all taken over a period of many years.
