Are They or Aren’t They?

There are arguments as to whether Red Pandas are more closely related to the raccoon family or to the bear family, but most experts think they belong to a family of their own - the Ailuridae.

Shrinking Space

As deforestation continues and agriculture spreads, the Red Panda’s natural habitat is shrinking.   

You can see the Red Pandas in the Prairie Cabin in the Hy-Vee Face-to-Face Farm.
