Status in the Wild
Their upper body has long, soft reddish-brown fur, and the underparts are a darker reddish-brown to black, as are the limbs. The bottom of their feet are thickly furred, which makes them well insulated for walking on snow and ice. They have white markings on the side of the head and above the eyes. They have a long, bushy tail that they use to balance, as well as to cover themselves in the colder climates. Semiretractable claws aid them while climbing and give them stability among the branches. They have strong jaws, which they use to chew on bamboo.
