All the Schleich figures are lovingly hand-painted with detailed modelling and allow kids to learn while they play. The red panda is a small mammal that lives in the eastern Himalayas and south-west China. It eats mainly bamboo. In the same way as the red panda from Schleich® Wild Life, at first glance the animal looks like a cross between a raccoon, a fox and a cat. And despite its name it isn’t a panda. A new animal family was created for the red panda, with the scientific name Ailurus.
