The Red Panda is an adorable little mammal from our modern time, where it was once an endangered species. On the ARKs, however...it has surprisingly made a firm hold in appropriate habitats. What's even more strange is that all manner of carnivores don't seem to bother it. This small, adorable animal seems able to go about its ways in a carefree life devoid of problems, under the watchful eyes of nearby herbivores. If the Red Panda does find itself under attack, however, assistance is normally not far behind, as almost every herbivore in the immediate vicinity will rush to its aid! Easily curious and friendly towards humans, Red Pandas can be tamed by offering them food. When tamed, they prove themselves extremely affectionate and adorable companions. Being near them seems to keep survivors and their dinos in good spirits- but there seems to be something else. Normally aggressive creatures that see a red panda with a survivor will then become passive towards that survivor and their creatures- so long as their fluffy little voucher remains nearby. Tamed, they can prove a mediator and a way to stay safe from certain dangerous animals.
