Red pandas are 2 distinct species, study finds

Feb 28, 2020 17:09 IST

Did you know that there are actually two distinct species of the red panda? A study by researchers from the Chinese Academy of Sciences in Beijing and Kunming says the pandas can be divided into the Chinese red panda and the Himalayan red panda. The study, published in the journal Science Advances, analysed 65 wild red pandas from across Asia and found that Chinese red pandas have redder faces and more distinct white and dark red tail rings compared to the Himalayan pandas.
