Syracuse's Rosamond Gifford Zoo has two recent reasons to celebrate International Red Panda Day Saturday. Two red panda cubs named Ravi and Amirya were born on June 27th to second-time mother Tabei. But the tiny cubs aren't on exhibit to zoo guests just yet.
In a release, officials say they're inside nest boxes under the careful watch of their mother. They have opened their eyes and are mobile, but are still tiny and nursing. Zookeepers have been conducting regular weight and wellness checks to monitor the cub's growth and health.
