Red Panda

This animal could be straight out of the pages of a fantasy book: the red panda has elf-like ears, charming markings that run from its eyes to its chin, and a lovely tail with cute stripes..

Poison Dart Frog

Almost as beautiful and colorful as a rainbow! The ranitomeya reticulata poison dart frog is just 0,47 in (12 mm) (male) to 0.78 in (20 mm) (female) in length. This is as big as a 2 cent coin!

Ring-Tailed Lemur

King Julien from the movie Madagascar might seem a little odd, but his real relatives are very smart, skilled and expressive wet-nosed primates. And not all lemurs look like the ring-tailed lemur in the photo. There are around 100 types with lots of different colors and markings.
