Pathology Survey of the Red Panda (Ailurus fulgens)

  • Chapter

Abstract

The red panda (Ailurus fulgens) (Fig. 1) is a raccoon-sized arctoid carnivore which inhabits Himalayan forests from western Nepal to northern Szechuan. There are two superficially different populations considered by some to be distinct subspecies — A. f. fulgens and A.f. styani, the latter being of more robust size and having a darker pelage [1, 2].
