It’s twins…rare red pandas

Zoo staff were celebrating yesterday after these two rare RED pandas were born in a breeding program. The two red panda cubs were born to father Randy, three, and mother Mandy, six, at Paignton Zoo in Devon.

Both pandas – a boy and a girl – are from a shy species and will take many weeks before they emerge into the open.

Hey, Red!

Have you ever seen one of these things?

Probably not, unless you happen to live in the Himalayan foothills between 5,000 and 13,000 feet. Red pandas eat exclusively bamboo, live largely solitary lives, and are well known within the animal kingdom for being far too adorable to eat.
