The Red Panda eats mostly bamboo.
Like the Giant Panda,it cannot digest cellulose, so it must consume a large volume of bamboo to survive. Its diet consists of about two-thirds bamboo, but they also eat berries, fruit, mushrooms, roots, acorns, lichen, grasses, and they are known to supplement their diet with young birds, fish, eggs, small rodents, and insects on occasion.
In captivity, however, they will readily eat meat. Red Pandas are excellent climbers and forage largely in trees.
