"If a Red Panda feels threatened or senses danger, it will often try to scamper up into an inaccessible rock column or a tree. If they can no longer flee, they stand up on their hind legs, which makes them appear somewhat more daunting and... allows them...

"The Fox's ability to meld into one's surroundings and be unnoticed is a powerful gift when one is observing the activities of others. This allows it to be the protector of the family unit.

Fox accomplishes this through the ability to observe undetected, without making others self-conscious."

The red fox is bigger than the Arctic fox and is not only scaring them away, leaving mother Arctic foxes to abandon their litters, but the two are competing for food.
