Tiny endangered red panda born at Edinburgh Zoo

31/08/2021 in Edinburgh Zoo

Keepers at the Royal Zoological Society of Scotland (RZSS) have captured the first pictures of an eight-week-old endangered red panda kit at Edinburgh Zoo. 

Born on 10 July 2021 to mum Ginger and dad Bruce, the youngster will receive their first health checks from the wildlife conservation charity’s teams in the coming weeks and will be named shortly after.

The kit will remain in the cubbing den until they grow more independent from mum. It is hoped visitors will start to spot the youngster over the coming months as they begin to explore the outdoor enclosure, which was funded by players of People’s Postcode Lottery.
