Species: Red Panda
Birthday: Wednesday, September 15, 2010
A striped tail protrudes from this orange egg.
Sweet looking as they are, red pandas can be nasty creatures, and a magi would do well to be aware of their teeth. Found far to the east, these mammals live on bamboo, insects, eggs, and whatever small animals that are foolish enough to wander too near. They make their homes high in the tree tops, and are fiercely protective of their young. It can come as quite a shock to have one of these creatures viciously attack you from above in the middle of the night. To those who have made a red panda their companion, though, they exhibit better natures. Despite their weight, they will climb on your shoulders and lovingly comb through your hair, only occasionally ripping some out. Whatever food you may be eating is assumed to be theirs as well, although they will happily repay you by guarding your door, leaping at any would-be attackers. Though they look quite a bit like the raccoons around The Keep, their beautiful reddish coats and magical abilities mark them as different.
