Knoxville Zoo shows off newest baby red pandas

KNOXVILLE — The Knoxville Zoo’s newest red pandas are twin boys, each weighing about a pound, that spend their days nestled in their nest box at the park’s Boyd Family Red Panda Village.

The cubs, number 107 and 108 born at the zoo, add to the park’s reputation as a premier place for red panda breeding and care.

More red pandas have been born at the zoo than at any other in the world.

The yet unamed boys are the children of mother Scarlett, 3, and father Madan. They were born June 23, on Madan’s 16th birthday.
