Red Panda Exhibit, Eurasia
0am - 4:00pm
Did you know the red panda is one of the few animals entirely covered with fur? Even the bottoms of their feet are furry, an adaptation to conserve energy. This unique creature, native to the temperate forests of the Himalayas, also happens to be exceptionally cute! Learn all about the 'original' panda, discovered 50 years before the giant panda, with a meet-the-keeper talk plus enrichment feeding at 12:00 noon and 3:00 pm. Plus, bid on fun prizes in a panda-themed silent auction, including a painting created by one of our red pandas! All proceeds support the Red Panda Network, an organization committed to the conservation of wild red pandas and their habitat.
