It’s International Red Panda Day 2014! To celebrate this day and highlight one of Breah’s favorite animals and art subjects here is a digital drawing of a “Firefox” in their homeland among the Himalaya Mountains. This artwork originated as a digital drawing and is presented here to honor the ORIGINAL Panda. Learn more about Red Pandas through many zoos around the United States including the Knoxville Zoo in Tennessee, Georgia’s Zoo Atlanta, Ohio’s Columbus Zoo and the international conservation organization online at the Red Panda Network.
“Red pandas were introduced to the Western world in 1821 — more than 40 years before giant pandas were scientifically described in 1869.”
