From the Smithsonian’s National Zoo:

“Who are Shredder, Clinger, and Slash? 80s hair band? Nope. Rusty the red panda’s 7-month-old cubs! When the trio of brothers were just shy of two months old, keepers stepped in to raise them. Thanks to the efforts of animal care staff, they’re growing and gaining independence! See photos and read more.
