Hilarious video of red panda nearly jumping out of its fur is viral hit

TWO red pandas got quite a fright when a zookeeper crept up and surprised them during meal time.

After the success of the internet sensation ‘sneezing baby panda’ an amusing video of the giant pandas’ Himalayan cousins, red pandas, has emerged to take its crown.

In the video, three red pandas can be seen pottering around their enclosure in Maruyama Zoo in Hokkaido, Japan. Two are enjoying a bite to eat when a zookeeper’s wellington appears in the frame and surprises them.

One of the cuddly creatures is so shocked it is literally bowled over backwards.
