A North Yorkshire zoo has welcomed a bundle of furry joy!
This is a rare red panda cub, born at the award-winning Kirby Misperton attraction last month.
“On the 30th of June 2023, our two red pandas, Bai Jiao and Tai Jang, welcomed their baby red panda cub into the world,” a Flamingo Land spokesperson said.
Is it a boy or a girl? It’s too early to tell.
“You may not be able to see our red panda cub out in our red panda area at Flamingo Land for a few months as the cub will be watched by Tai Jang in their nesting box for the first few months.
“Once the red panda cub can leave its nesting box, our keepers can do some health checks and find out the sex of our newest cub.”
This is Flamingo Land’s fourth successful birth of red pandas and one of only ten cubs born in the past year in the UK.
Previous cubs from the North Yorkshire zoo have ventured far and wide, taking part breeding programme across zoos in Sweden, Wales, and the Netherlands.
All three previous offspring have nurtured their own young.
In 2022, Bai Jiao and Tai Jang became great grandparents at the age of eleven to twins born in Italy.
Flamingo Land said: “Keep your eyes peeled on our socials for updates on the birth of our new red panda cub!”
