A red panda was born in June. The cub is staying in the nest box for the time being. Red panda cubs usually stay in the nest for four months before they show up outside. The zookeeper could cautiously make this special film when mother Yukiko was away for a moment to eat. In this video you can clearly see that the tail is almost as long as the body. Blijdorp Zoo has a special bond with red pandas. Since 1978 we coordinate the World Studbook and the European breeding program.
