Red panda kit born at Edinburgh Zoo

Keepers have captured the first images of the baby red panda.

The first images have been released of a red panda born at Edinburgh Zoo.

Keepers at the Zoo were excited to capture the first images of the eight-week-old red panda kit, who is yet to be named.

Born on 10 July 2021, to Ginger and Bruce, the kit will remain in the cubbing den until they become more independent. 

The kit will receive health checks from the RZSS's wildlife conservation charity teams in the next few weeks, and will be named afterwards. 

It is hoped that visitors will have the opportunity to spot the young red panda in the next few months, as it begins to explore the outdoor enclosure. 

The birth of the small red panda kit is a cause for celebration for the RZSS, as red pandas are an endangered species, mostly due to habitat loss.
