Pneumonia from Angiostrongylus vasorum infection in a red panda (Ailurus fulgens fulgens). (2/5)

A 9-year-old, male, captive red panda (Ailurus fulgens fulgens) in an urban zoo in the United Kingdom presented with respiratory distress and weight loss. The animal was euthanatized, and a postmortem examination was performed. The lungs were diffusely consolidated with extensive mineralization. Microscopically, there was extensive obliteration of normal pulmonary architecture by sheets and coalescing nodules of partially mineralized fibrous tissue and granulomatous inflammation centered on large numbers of nematode larvae and eggs. First stage nematode larvae were isolated from lung tissue and were characterized as Angiostrongylus vasorum on the basis of their morphology and sequencing of the 18S ribosomal RNA gene and the entire second internal transcribed spacer. Although A. vasorum has previously been reported in red pandas in a zoological collection in Denmark, this study is the first reported case in the United Kingdom and occurs against a background of geographical spread and increased incidence of disease in domestic and wild canids. Angiostrongylus vasorum should be considered a differential diagnosis for respiratory disease in the red panda and taken into account when planning parasite and pest control programs for zoological collections.  (+info)

The red panda is found in a mountainous band from western Nepal through northeastern India and Bhutan and into China, Laos and northern Myanmar. The species also lives throughout mountainous areas of southwestern China. Red pandas only live in temperate forests in the foothills of the Himalayas. They reside at altitudes generally between 1500 and 4800 meters where the temperature is generally cool, and there is little annual variation. A bamboo understory grows in these forests and provides the bulk of the red pandas diet. However, these patches of bamboo are only found in narrow bands throughout the red pandas range. Thus, although red pandas are distributed across thousands of miles of territory, they are restricted to these small, fragile areas.. The red pandas diet mostly consists of bamboo, very unusual for a mammal. Their broad teeth and strong jaws allow them to chew bamboos tough leaves and stalks. They also have a small, bony projection on their wrists that helps them grip bamboo ...

The primary threats to red pandas are direct harvest from the wild, live or dead, competition with domestic livestock resulting in habitat degradation, and deforestation resulting in habitat loss or fragmentation. The relative importance of these factors is different in each region, and is not well understood.[11] For instance, in India, the biggest threat seems to be habitat loss followed by poaching, while in China, the biggest threat seems to be hunting and poaching.[1] A 40% decrease in red panda populations has been reported in China over the last 50 years, and populations in western Himalayan areas are considered to be lower.[18] Deforestation can inhibit the spread of red pandas and exacerbate the natural population subdivision by topography and ecology, leading to severe fragmentation of the remaining wild population. Fewer than 40 animals in four separate groups share resources with humans in Nepals Langtang National Park, where only 6% of 1,710 km2 (660 sq mi) is preferred red panda ...
To genetically evaluate red pandas both in zoos and in Nepal. The red panda (Ailurus fulgens) is a charismatic, beautiful but threatened flagship species addressing Himalayan conservation issues. The IUCN Red List of Threatened Species lists the conservation status of red pandas as vulnerable, with an estimated population of less than 10,000 adult individuals surviving in the wild. This status is currently under review. The species is elusive and sightings are particularly rare due to its low densities, biology and inaccessibility of its habitat. Most of the previous work on their status has been based on counting their scats. Scats, but also hair or urine (in snow), are sources of DNA and enable conservationists and researchers to draw various valuable conclusions in assessing the status of a target species. Located at the conservation genetics group of the Senckenberg Research Institute, our international project aims to establish a non-invasive genetic monitoring scheme for the genetic ...
September 16, 2019. Males, Piercy and Lino (pronounced Leeno) and female, Chris-Anne, are the official names for the Virginia Zoos three red panda cubs born this summer. The Zoo launched an auction for the naming rights of the three new red panda cubs, in which all three names were purchased by separate individuals. The auction, which was set to last two weeks came to a close in just a short 72 hours where each name sold for the max bid of $2,500. The proceeds from the auction, a total of $7,500, will be donated to the Red Panda Network, a conservation partner of the Virginia Zoo.. ...
Zoo keepers monitor the duo via a remote camera mounted in the nest box. "They sleep most of the time, but we also see Xiao grooming herself and the cub," said Lacey. Xiao leaves the nest box several times a day to eat climb in the exhibit. Xiao and her cub spend nearly all of their time tucked in a nest box within the red panda exhibit, where Xiao nurses, grooms, and sleeps next to her cub. This is natural behavior for red pandas, who nest in hollow trees in the wild. Cubs typically remain in the nest box for about three months, which means zoo guests have little chance of seeing the cub until late August or early September.. Three to four times a week, zoo keepers distract Xiao with a tasty bamboo branch and quickly weigh the cub. So far, the cub is gaining weight, and has more than tripled her birth weight of 139 grams to 454 grams (about one pound). Twice a week, they perform a more thorough exam on the cub, checking for any abnormalities.. The cubs eyes are now open, and she makes ...

The fur on a red panda was a new experience for me as it is soft thick and dense to protect them from cooler temperatures and fuzzy / rugged looking at times. So it wasnt a simple brushstroke I was after showing singular hairs as such, but a rough matted appearance to represent the wooley fuzzy look. I experimented with different techniques and found the best approach was to have your brush almost dry with the paint on it giving short quick bursts of direction, layering and movement is so important when capturing fur on any animal. ...

When French zoologist Frédéric Georges Cuvier described the Red Panda in 1825, he thought the animal was a type of raccoon, and so placed it in the Procyonidae. It was British zoologist John Edward Gray who placed it in its own family, Ailuridae, in 1843 based on differences in its physiology and behavior. At one time the Red Panda has even been considered to belong to a new and ultimately rejected family called the Ailuropodidae together with the Panda Bear. This theory was rejected after the recognition that the Panda Bear is, as its name suggests, a true bear within the family Ursidae ...
Big changes are happening at the red panda exhibit. Were saying goodbye to two old friends, hello to a new one, and maybe preparing for a new arrival.. Zoo fans got to know Maliha the red panda cub in 2014. Maliha was born to mother Xiao and father Junji on June 9. A team of zoo keepers and veterinarian staff monitored the little cub closely for the first few months, while the path to her exhibit remained closed in an effort to minimize disturbances. Near the end of the 2014 season, Maliha did venture out into her exhibit and zoo guests had a chance to meet her before we closed in October.. Zoo staff is happy to report that Maliha is still thriving and that the Fort Wayne Childrens Zoo has received a new breeding recommendation for Xiao!. The breeding of red pandas is overseen by the Species Survival Plan (SSP), a program of the Association of Zoos & Aquariums. The goal of the SSP is to maximize genetic diversity in zoo-dwelling populations of endangered and threatened animals.. What does all ...
Procyonid fossils once believed to belong to the genus Bassariscus, which includes the modern ringtail and cacomistle, have been identified from the Miocene epoch, around 20 million years (Ma) ago. It has been suggested that early procyonids were an offshoot of the canids that adapted to a more omnivorous diet.[4] The recent evolution of procyonids has been centered on Central America (where their diversity is greatest);[5] they invaded the formerly isolated South America as part of the Great American Interchange,[6] beginning about 7.3 Ma ago in the late Miocene, with the appearance there of Cyonasua.[7]. Genetic studies have shown that kinkajous are a sister group to all other extant procyonids; they split off about 22.6 Ma ago.[8] The clades leading to coatis and olingos on one hand, and to ringtails and raccoons on the other, separated about 17.7 Ma ago.[5] The divergence between olingos and coatis is estimated to have occurred about 10.2 Ma ago,[5] at about the same time that ringtails and ...

With its 733,643 people, Bhutan is the 163rd largest country in the world by population. It is the 135th largest country in the world by area with 38,394 square kilometers. In 1865, Britain and Bhutan signed the Treaty of Sinchulu, under which Bhutan would receive an annual subsidy in exchange for ceding some border land to British India. Under British influence, a monarchy was set up in 1907; three years later, a treaty was signed whereby the British agreed not to interfere in Bhutanese internal affairs, and Bhutan allowed Britain to direct its foreign affairs. This role was assumed by independent India after 1947. Two years later, a formal Indo-Bhutanese accord returned to Bhutan the areas annexed by the British, formalized the annual subsidies the country received, and defined Indias responsibilities in defense and foreign relations. In March 2005, King Jigme Singye WANGCHUCK unveiled the governments draft constitution - which introduced major democratic reforms - and pledged to hold a ...
Marwell Zoo is set in 140 acres beautifully landscaped grounds in Hampshire. It is quite an expensive day out but well worth it. I have been to other zoos in the past and often felt let down by the way the enclosures are laid out that you dont get to see the animals very well. Marwell, however, does this very well. We saw all the animals - even the elusive Red Panda (well some of it sleeping up in the tree!). The whole park is just a delight, you are able to see the animals really well and up close, there is lots of information about them and their natural habitats and conservation information too. The park also has lots of areas to picnic and cafes, an education centre and adventure playgrounds for the children, including this big slide that Imogen describes as being like a big elephants trunk, we all had a go at this one (climbing up inside the pyramid bit wasnt easy for the adults though!).
