Red Panda. Easily the most adorable animal on earth. An animal I never thought I'd get to photograph in the wild.
About 10,000 of these live in the foothills of the world's tallest mountains in Nepal, India, China, Bhutan and Myanmar.
You would think these beautiful animals would stand right out in the forests,
but their red color actually makes them look like reddish moss from above and the black bottom looks like the tree limbs.
If you scroll down further, I put a shot of the moss they resemble to raptors from above.
The Red Panda Conservation Network are doing an amazing job with few resources. Contact them and go see a Red Panda yourself!
Your visit and donations will make a very immediate difference in protecting these amazing animals.
