The Red Panda's habitat is located in the bamboo forests of the Himalayan mountains of China. The Himalayans are in Western China and the Red Panda lives at the elevation of 2,000 to 4,800 meters high! This is a great elevation for panda to live because the weather is very cool and the air is moist for the interesting Red panda. The Himalayans have a mixture of deciduous and coniferous trees, a great place for the Red panda to make a habitat and live. The Red Panda has bamboo to eat and rhododendrons (bushes with flowers on it) to also eat. Then you ask, how does the Red panda make its home and what does it make its home out of, right? The Red Panda makes its shelter and homes out of hollow trees. It also lives in homes like dens in the Chinese Himalayans.
