More closely related to raccoons and weasel, the adorable red pandas frolic in the forests of the Himalayas, Burma, and central China.

These cute and cuddly critters are native to South America. In the 1950s, the species was considered to be extinct, but they were rediscovered in the late 1970s. Since then, they have, unfortunately, appeared consistently on the most endangered species list. Conservation efforts are in effect, but numbers continue to dwindle.
