Firefox

I'm pretty sure most of you read firefox and first think of the web browser, but did you know that there is actually an animal called the firefox? The Firefox aslso known as the red panda is a small arboreal mammal and the only species of the genus Ailurus. Slightly larger than a domestic cat, it has reddish-brown fur, a long, shaggy tail, and a waddling gait due to its shorter front legs. It eats mainly bamboo, but is omnivorous and may also eat eggs, birds, insects, and small mammals. It is a solitary animal, mainly active from dusk to dawn, and is largely sedentary during the day.

  13. That thing's adorable. I'd love to have it as a pet, despite it probably sucking as one.
