Zoo Boise, a division of Boise Parks and Recreation, is happy to announce the birth of two red panda cubs this summer. The twin cubs, one female and one male, were born on June 19, 2019 to parents Dolly and Spud. This is the couple’s first litter, but Dolly’s sixth.
Like red pandas in the wild, the cubs have been spending their first weeks in the den with their mother. As they continue to grow and develop over the next few months, they will slowly begin to emerge from the den to explore the exhibit. Visitors to the zoo may be able to catch a glimpse of the cubs as they start to spend more time outside.
