The Utica Zoo is welcoming two new additions.

Two Red Panda cubs were recently born at the zoo.

One male and one female cub were born on July 6th and mom and cubs are doing great.

The cubs will be off exhibit until the late fall to allow Ming-Yue ample time to raise her cubs in privacy.

The first opportunity for public viewing will be on September 21st at International Red Panda Day with a one day, limited sneak peek.
