AILURIDAE (Red Pandas)

The Ailuridae, whose evolutionary origins are still not entirely clear, is represented
by a single extant species: Ailurus fulgens, the Red Panda. Although its range
is shrinking, it appears to still be present in parts of Nepal, Sikkim, northern Burma,
and the Chinese provinces of Sichuan, Xizang, and Yunnan (and possibly or probably
Bhutan and the Indian state of Arunachal Pradesh).
