Big 5s

“I’ll choose the red panda because pictures of this shy mammal in the wild are so rare. I want to see images of animals in their natural habitat, which is surprisingly rare for many species. I captured some images of red pandas in one of my camera traps in Bhutan just last year and I was delighted.

I read a few weeks ago that scientists have described two different species of red panda: the Chinese red panda and the Himalaya red panda. The Himalayan red panda is distributed in Nepal, Bhutan, northern India, northern Myanmar, Tibet and the western Yunnan province of China, while the Chinese red panda inhabits the Yunnan and Sichuan provinces of China. This has important implications for conservation of these species – the Himalayan species is endangered because it has a very small distribution and low population density.”
