🔥 A very fluffy red panda making themselves comfortable in their tree house
By - d3333p7
They are adorable little guys for sure. We had one disappear at the Norfolk zoo I don’t think they ever found it. Also apparently it’s become a cold case.
I thought I was watching Garfield at first.
Well there’s always one way to tell is there an empty lasagna tray nearby?
Norfolk US or UK?
Impressively relevant username..
The long con
So america? What does "VA" mean?
We use an abbreviated two letter system for addresses
Username checks out
Wouldn't surprise me if some employee took them home.
Why did you steal my profile picture?
I’ll have you know I’ve been insane
Is that normal red panda behaviour or was this one a cat in a former life?
Pretty normal, check out r/redpandas
Thanks. I already know I will subscribe. :)
Edit: they are professional teddy bears. Nobody can change my mind.
Pretty sure they run on the Trash Panda OS
If tail is in the air, knock before entering 😁
THE TOE BEANS!!!!!!!!!!
He looks so soft
There is no better time in history of the earth that a species can take benefits out of evolutionary trait of cuteness.
i was afraid it would end before i saw the face.
Do ants not bother animals or something? Anytime i sit down in the woods for 5min I'm covered in ants
They have lots of fur that prevents them from even noticing the ants.
Pabu! Get out of that tree, you don't know where its been!
Do these make good pets? Because I would pet everyday.
Naa… Their claws don’t retract and they’re very sharp. They also typically like to be alone, as in no other panda or human touching them unless it’s fucking season.
Hah, I ended up finding a video explaining why they’re bad pets. The “marking territory” would be the worst. Plus the fact they don’t like you and will claw you. And that they’re endangered and this would be illegal.

It’s like the Cheshire Cat.
I want to pet his head and kiss those lil toe beans ❤️
Me too 😍 you'd love r/CallMeAHearse lol
New fave sub. Omg. So much to snuggle.
Why is it themselves and not itself?
What does using singular they have to do with trans people? What if you don't know the gender of the person?
'Someone dropped their wallet, I hope they find it'
When singular they has been in use [since at least Shakespeare's day,](https://www.merriam-webster.com/dictionary/they#h1) I wasn't aware that trans and enby folk were making it "so damn complicated", as you put it.
Sorry you're getting downvoted. It makes me crazy too, to use a plural pronoun for a singular thing. Absolutely nothing against trans, gay, hetero, whatever people are. It's a language and communication issue. With zillions of words already available, and an endless supply of words that can be invented, why on earth are we choosing or settling for one that already means something else?
"it already means something else"
Yep, but a word can have multiple meanings.
So to give you an example,
"Nail" is a noun generally referring to (1) the part of your finger or (2) the thing you hit with a hammer.
"Them" is a pronoun generally referring to (1) multiple individuals that do not include the speaker nor the interlocutor, or (2) an individual whose gender is not known.
Nowadays "them" is also used to refer to (3) nonbinary people.
"Them" as a singular pronoun has been used for centuries in cases where an individual's gender is unknown to the speaker.
However those who do not accept trans people usually try to use it as a political tool and refuse to use it (or criticise those who do) as an act of "rebellion" against what they think is political correctness, even in contexts like this, where it has nothing political in it and is just a linguitic tool, much older than western trans acceptance, used to refer to an individual whose gender is unknown to the speaker.
And if I’m correct it’s on the Firefox logo
What a precious SWEETHEART!
Also makes me wonder what it would be like to have a tail
I don't know about the rest of you but I really want to pet that FLUFFY tail. I mean look at it, it has to be soft and just perfect lol.
Aww. The red panda at out zoo was always sleeping in the tree like this when I saw it.
Not to mention their calls are angelic.
That's a fire ferret
Look at those little footsies!
If I could just have a pet red panda, my life would be complete.
Red pandas are the cutest things on earth, preserve them at all costs.
The cutest thing about this is it doesn't even know how cute it is.
I went to the Knoxville zoo about 25 years ago. I took a break from walking to have lunch on a bench. Two strange looking raccoons came over and sat down by me and begged for food. I gave them a few apple slices as I finished my sandwich. Suddenly a very frantic zookeeper comes up and scoops them up. She explained to me that they were red pandas and they were quite good at escaping. I got to interact with them in their enclosure and feed them grubs and bamboo. They are cute but do not smell good.
*themself. Red panda is singular, so the pronoun is singular
I believe either works but itself does sound more natural!
Using it for an animal unless you know its a he or a she is the correct way. You never use they as a singular. Im not being woke, Its just basic english grammar.
Actually, the singular they has been around for a long, long time, and is 100% grammatically correct.
You probably use it all the time without even knowing it. For example: “Oh, someone left *their* wallet here, I should see if I can contact *them*.”
Even if it wasn’t considered technically grammatically correct, language changes and shift over time anyway, and singular they is widely considered grammatically correct, so there’s no reason not to use it in everyday speech.
Yes ofc singular they is used but not for animals? Animals already have a neutral pronoun which is it. Languages change over time but making up new rules that add absolutely nothing and just confuse everyone for no reason makes no sense. If i said “They are a dog.” you would automatically asume that Im refering to a person as a dog in an insulting way unlike if i said “Its a dog.”
It has never been done for animals. "It" until you know its sex.
Aren't these native to china and northern India?
I wish I could have one as a pet. Hopefully, generations after can.
How’s it even possible this animal can survive in the wild? Is this what happens when you don’t have any natural predators? Perhaps we should all strive to be more like the red panda.
They are prey for Snow Leopards in their native range. At least it’s an adorable doofy predator…
Panda's like, "butts in the air and I dont care"!
I wish I was one of those
Wanted so bad to reach through the screen and tweek his tail
I never realized Pabu’s character was so spot on
The little feets!!
They’re just the best!
Pabu lives at Zoo Montana now, pretty sure this is a different Red Panda ;)
Idk about any of that, Pabu is a red panda looking character in the Legend of Korra 💙
What did we do to deserve this
Tree houses do be cozy
The tail tho
What are you doing step-panda?
Are y'all srsly afraid to misgender a panda?? Just call the panda "it" that's what's the English grammar says.
How do you know this panda is non-binary
There’s only one of them so that should read “….IT’S making ITSELF comfortable in ITS treehouse. “
Not to be that guy, but from the background I’d say this is a zoo animal, which doesn’t really belong here
Too bad they don't like being pet by humans, and have razor sharp nails
Didn’t Disney invent these?
So so cute
How can that be comfortable
There is the Rabbit Cage u can pet, i want these and fvcking penguins!
You've obviously caught Mr. Snuffleupagus.
Es muy lindo
Was feeling really depressed video cheered me up thank you ♥
Would pull on that if I happened by and just saw it sticking it like that.
So content in a tree. A dream
Was this at Roger Williams?
How did red get out of my menagerie
Do they ever get stuck?
Without the title I could've thought it was a cat until the head showed up

Are there any reputable breeders that breed short hair orange Persian kittens available in NC?

I don’t believe they can live in the wild they’re dumb as rocks from everything I’ve ever seen lmao
Their is not only a pronoun.
Retsuko finally got fired
