Red panda question
So I'm getting caught up on Planet Earth (fantastic, by the way), and they just said that the red panda is "now viewed as a small mountain bear".
Buh?
Did I miss another reclassification? Wikipedia still has them in the superfamily Mustelidea.
Thanks. :)"


Anyone know of this?
My two sources say Procyonids and Ailuridae...
