Red Panda Anime Season 2 Pavilion (EX)​ Nexon Game

The Red Panda is a type of Friend which first appeared in the original Kemono Friends game.

Appearance

Red Panda's original design has brown eyes and light, brownish-orange hair that fades into white with a single back stripe at the bangs. It is tied into a ponytail, and has two white markings that represent the coloration around a red panda's eyes. She wears a black and dark grey striped sleeveless shirt with a black ruffled collar, black gloves, short white jeans, thigh high black stockings with two grey stripes at the end, and black shoes tied by grey ribbons.

The EX re-design, which is featured in Season 2 of the anime, has a darker, more reddish-brown coloration for the hair, which is now much shorter, frizzier, no longer tied, and has white coloration in the side and middle bangs as well as in hair protruding from the animal ears. It has a singular black marking, representing the nose of a red panda. She now wears a black, long-sleeved shirt with a ruffled collar featuring a prominent ribbon and short black jeans. Both are a brownish-orange on the backside (and, in the jeans, on the pockets), and she still retains her gloves and stockings, albeit the latter are no longer striped. Her shoes remain mostly black and tied by ribbons, but now have white soles and toe caps.

Both designs have the ears and tail of the red panda - however, the coloration in the EX design is much more saturated and reddish, with the tip of the tail fading into brown instead of black.

In Real Life

The red panda is a mammal native to the mountains of Nepal and northern Myanmar, as well as in central China. The red panda's head and body length measures 50 to 64 cm and its tail is 28 to 59 cm. They weigh between 5.4 to 9 kg. Their roundish heads have medium-sized upright ears, black noses, and blackish eyes. Their long bushy, fluffy tails, similar to raccoons, with six alternating red and white rings helps then maintain their balance as they climb trees and are excellent camouflage against their habitat of moss- and lichen- covered trees. Their long sharp claws help then climb to the highest branches to sunbathe or escape from predators. The legs are black and short with thick fur on the soles of the paws; this fur serves as thermal insulation on snow-covered or icy surfaces. The red panda is endemic to the temperate forests of the Himalayas, and ranges from the foothills of western Nepal to China in the east. They are territorial and are solitary except during mating season. The red panda is observed to be both nocturnal and crepuscular, sleeping on tree branches or in tree hollows during the day and increasing its activity in the late afternoon and early evening hours. It sleeps stretched out on a branch with legs dangling when it's hot, and curled up with its tail over the face when it's cold. Red pandas are excellent tree climbers, and forage largely in trees. Their diets consist of about 80 to 90 percent of bamboo, but they also eat small mushrooms, roots, acorns, lichens, grasses, flowers and berries. Occasionally, they supplement their diets with fish, birds, insects, small mammals and eggs. A red panda's average lifespan is between 11 and 13 years, but individuals have been known to reach 15 years.

Trivia
