Smithsonian Video: Raising Red Pandas

This Red Panda update is phenomenal.

  • Interesting video (and the baby red pandas are mighty cute!).
    It looks like whoever wrote the Smithsonian Channel’s blurb didn’t get it quite right in referring to “two orphaned red panda cubs.” It looks like Henry _might_ have been one of the cubs of Shama (who had to be euthanized), but it’s not clear. It sounds like he was sick from the very beginning, so they pulled him immediately for hand-rearing. The other cub, Tink, wasn’t gaining any weight because her mother wasn’t producing enough milk.

  • They sure are cute. It would be sweet if they would go to the same zoo to stay together. What a wonderful feeling it must be to handle one of these little guys and have them know you.
