Zoo's Red Pandas Get Clean Bill of Health

Posted:

Two red panda cubs born at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo in June have received a clean bill of health.

Zoo Veterinarian Margarita Woc-Colburn performed a complete physical exam on the cubs Thrusday and administered their first set of vaccines.

The cubs are healthy, strong, active and have good vocalizations.

The cubs, which do not yet have names, are the offspring of three-year-old mother Shama and four-year-old father Tate.

More than 100 cubs have been born at the Zoo since 1962.

Visitors can see the cubs at the Asia Trail exhibit this fall.
