Los ailúridos (Ailuridae) son una familia de mamíferos del orden Carnivora. La familia incluye al panda rojo y otros géneros extintos.

Especies fósiles[editar]

Además de Ailurus, la familia Ailuridae incluye ocho géneros extintos, muchos de los cuales fueron clasificados en dos subfamilias, Ailurinae y Simocyoninae.[1][2][3][4]
