WHAT KIND OF ANIMAL IS THIS?

Drudge has this photo with a story on the bad weather in the US- is it a Red Panda? It's just adorable but not native to the US?

Removing the question mark and all that follows it works. Try this link.

Here's the url to a page that should be most helpful:

http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Red_panda


("The taxonomic classification of both the Red Panda and Giant Panda has been under debate for many decades, as both species share characteristics of both bears and raccoons. However, they are only very distantly related by remote common ancestry from the Early Tertiary Period. Its common ancestor can be traced back to tens of millions of years ago with a wide distribution across Eurasia. Fossils of the Red Panda have been unearthed from China in the east to Britain in the west (Hu, 1990), and most recently a handful of fossils (Pristinailurus bristoli, Miocene,[4][5] considered to be a new genus and species of the Red Panda)[6] have also been discovered in North America" {wikipedia}.)

I think they're beautiful & even precious!! ,

Probably a zoo picture you don't see many of those in the backyard LOL. It threw me to see the photo with a US weather story. I agree they are really gorgeous- thanks for the link
