The lesser, or red, panda is a small, tree-climbing mammal –in appearance resembling a cross between a small bear and a raccoon, with thick, rusty colored fur. The muzzle, eye patches, and fronts of the large, pointed ears are white –as are several broad cheek patches. The face is also marked by long, white whiskers and an almost cat-like face. Their tails are long and bushy, with ginger rings. Their claws are sharp and partly retractable.
