    So basically, you want players to randomly lose items while in forests.  NO.

    I love red pandas, please add them! Maybe not with the stealing part but I think red pandas would be a great mob that can integrate bamboo into the game even more.

    Why not have them act as a helpful mobs. When tame they can "steal" items for you (either from mobs or from players) and will squeek at zombies scaring them away (great addition for villages)

    I think that the player should be alerted somehow when the panda steals from them, other than that, I like it!

    I like this idea but could they be tameable? so they wold bring back random items like cats do and you could get free stuff from them

    This idea is cool, but they should only be in bamboo forests.  Also, Minecraft already has a rip off red panda, it’s basically a normal panda but instead of black colors it has a tint of red.  I think this is a cool idea, only if they make a decent amount of sound.

    They should also put their paws in the air when they see cobblestone

    The whole stealing idea seems too modded. It reminds me of that one lizard in the desert that steals your items randomly in a mod that I played once. I love the red panda idea though. Always have thought red pandas deserved a spot in minecraft. Red pandas actually got the name panda first before pandas and are also nicknamed the fire fox. And since Mojang added foxes and pandas, it's only fair that red pandas get added too.

    I think red pandas should be tamed with bamboo instead of sugar. It would make more sense, because that's what real red pandas eat. I also think the stealing thing is a bit much, but maybe they could do it with less important stuff, like raw meat or bamboo, since that's what they eat.

    Rather then feeding them sugar why not feed them fruit such as apples, or you could even have them be the only way to harvest fruit from trees without destroying the trees. I also like the idea of them stealing from hostile mobs. Got a pesky skeleton with a helmet? The red panda will steal the helmet for you. You get a nice helmet and the skeleton burns alive. Don't forget to feed the red panda fruit :D

    How about, red pandas live in bamboo forests, and will take items that are dropped on the ground, like foxes. If you feed them eggs, they drop it in exchange for the egg. If you don't feed them eggs, you will just have too wait a couple minutes for them to be done playing with it, then they give it back and you can go about your day. If it is food you drop, like the fox, they will eat it rather than play with it.

    Good idea overall, but having to hit them for your items back?  It wouldn't be a good thing for Mojang to add an endangered animal that the player HAS to harm.

    Red pandas in Minecraft? hhhhhmmmmm.......yes? No? Maybe? I mean it makes sense since we already have regular pandas in Minecraft and they will make a great addition to the jungle biome. But maybe change up their mechanics so that they don't steal the players items and instead maybe make them able to be tamed.
