Red Panda Exhibit
The front paw of the Red Panda are equipped with a 'false thumb,' that is really an extension of the wrist bone to assist in holding bamboo and climbing trees like the Giant Panda.
Red pandas are excellent tree climbers; most active at dawn, dusk and at night foraging for food.
Red pandas were first discovered in 1821.
