Description
  • "Noon on a Sunday afternoon, an Ailurus fulgens (Red Panda) wakes from a day nap astride Morus nigra (Blackberry) tree some 15 meters high. Rest is both relaxing, hunting, and camouflage. The subtle fur changes color along the ventral with the dorsal planes exhibiting a delightful contrast. The top fur resembles the red and dark brown soil; the lower coat blends with the darker tones of bark and shaded earth. With keen senses of smell, hearing, and eyesight Ailurus fulgens can identify components of its omnivorous diet atop the branches. Ultimately however, the red panda's draped limbs counter balance with its tail allowing carefree napping. 6/15/2014, Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, Chengdu, Sichuan, People's Republic of China"
