OK, got it!

And so, when it grew up, decided to make the dream come true and went on the first trip.

Izzy was the first to encounter raccoons. As the raccoons greeted panda on two paws, it was frightened, but it turns out that in raccoon culture, standing on hind legs - is not a sign of aggression at all.

Hi, nice to see you! You are a quite different racoon, I’ve have never seen one like you.

Hi, nice to see you too! I am not a raccoon at all, I am a red panda. We do look a lot alike.

Raccoons seemed to Izzy very similar to pandas: they also like to sleep during the day and go for a walk in the evening, climb trees well, like berries and fruits, but have never tasted bamboo, and wash in the river everything they want to eat.

Next Izzy met giant panda, who also liked to eat bamboo, but they ate different parts of it: giant panda preferred items, red pandas - leaves.

Hi, my name is Izzy, I'm a Red Panda! And I like bamboo too, only I like the leaves better.

Hi, my name is Lee, and I'm also a panda, but a Giant one! That's interesting, help yourself.

The giant pandas also liked to climb trees and climbed high if they were scared or sad.

This time she encountered a cat who sometimes went out for a walk and talked about his kind owners who loved and cared for him very much.

It turned out that the cat likes to wash himself the same way as the panda (by licking his front paws and then rubbing his back, stomach and sides with them).

Hi, it's funny that you wash up just like me, but you're some other panda!

Hi! I'm not a panda at all,
I'm a house cat. Nice to meet you!

My name is Izzy, nice to meet you, too.

Charlie told Izzy that it’s owners’ friends had a red panda, that looks just the same.

It turned out that the panda who lives with people was rescued by them from poachers, who illegally hunted it small for its beautiful fur, especially for its highly valued bushy tail.

The panda was very interested in the cat's story and went looking for it. And then in one window Izzy finally saw the same red panda.

Hi, my name is Taylor! I've never seen anyone more like me, what house do you live in?

Hi, my name is Izzy! I don't live in any of these houses. I’m traveling now, and I grew up in the Himalayas. You’d love it there too, would you like to come with me?

I would love to see how you live, but honestly, I'm a little scared and sad to part with my guardians, they are very nice.

You can always come back, but I assure you this journey is worth it. If you know where you are from, it is harder for others to stop you from where you are going.

Back home, Izzy introduced it’s parents to a new friend Taylor and told them about other animals that were so similar to them. Little traveler was fascinated by how big and different the world around us is.

Taylor was excited to see the pandas and learned from them that most pandas are introverts.

They may all live in different trees and only occasionally meet, but that doesn't make the bond between them any weaker.

Taylor learned to climb trees just as deftly and sometimes, sitting almost on top of them, trying to look beyond the horizon, dreamed of new adventures.
