Here's a strange encounter we never knew we needed until this very moment.. a red panda coming face-to-face with a raccoon, and then the red panda continues to wander freely around the zoo. 

Disney, are you watching this? This is the type of story the world wants to see. Or maybe not, given the trauma after 'The Fox And The Hound.'

We've definitely made the connection before that a red panda resembles a raccoon more than a panda itself, so to see the two come face-to-face with one another is probably the cutest thing we've seen in a while, no matter how short it is.

Happy And Awwdorable Red Pandas

Does one really need a reason for displaying a bunch of really, really, really cute red pandas? We think not. 

The holiday season is upon us and winter is definitely already here! Did you know that Wintertime is a red panda's favorite time of the year? Red panda love playing in the snow and they can withstand cold temperatures up to -30 degrees!

Not only is Winter their favorite season, but it may also just become ours after learning that when a red panda is cold, they use their cute fluffy tail as a blanket and wrap it around their bodies. If that isn't the cutest thing you've heard all day, you are lying to yourself. 

Get ready for some red panda cuteness coming at you real fast!

Recently, the Oregon Zoo had announced the arrival of Mei Mei's baby cub! And since the cub's arrival, we've been getting little glimpses of moments such as these. Mei Mei is out and about, showing her cub around. 

From exploring to climbing trees, the adorable pair are just such a joy to watch! Red panda mothers are probably the only moms who would say, "My child climbs all over everything. I'm so proud!"

We could watch these red pandas forever.

Red Pandas Deliver The Cuteness Every Gosh Darn Time

Red pandas are the embodiment of cuteness. We can't help but turn to mush when looking at their sweet photos online. I mean, honestly, who in the world can resist that adorable face?! If there's another out there who can, we certainly don't care to be associated with that person. 

Fun fact! Did you know that Mozilla's flagship browser, 'Firefox', means red panda? Mozilla originally wanted to name the browser "Firebird", but as they found out, another open source project was using that name. Not wanting to get into a mess over the name, they decided to go with 'Firefox', another name for the red panda. 

And in a true example of adorableness, in 2010, Mozilla adopted two baby red pandas that had been born at Tennessee's Knoxville Zoo.

Panda-ora Box: a Collection Of Adorable Red Panda Pics

It's everyone's favorite day, International Red Panda day and we have some earth-shatteringly cute photos that are impossible to look at them without SQUEEING.

With the decline in their habitat, International Red Panda Day hopes to encourage people to learn about these adorable creatures and help save the biome in which they live. These animals spend most of their lives in trees and even sleep aloft. When foraging, they mostly nocturnal but also forage in the gloaming hours of dusk and dawn. Red pandas roam the Eastern Himalayas. These rust-colored creatures are experiencing a loss of nesting trees and bamboo, leading to a decline in the population. With less than 10,000 in the wild efforts are doubled every year to help these little firefoxes.

Mohan, who is one of three Red Panda Cubs born at Symbio Wildlife Park, has created a frenzy of cuteness across the internet as footage of him losing it over belly tickles and being affectionate with Zoo Keeper Beth Sticker was released onto the Zoos Facebook Page. Mohan is not only off the scale adorable, but actually plays an integral part in the long term survival of the species. He along with his siblings play an important role in the over-arching captive management breeding program that Symbio is part of, and he will one day too have a family of his own. With there believed to be less than 2,500 Red Pandas left in the wild, namely due to habitat loss and poaching, you have to say their future is definitely in some mighty cute hands, or paws.
