Red Pandas born at Prospect Park Zoo in Brooklyn, NY have made their public debut! These rare cubs have quickly become internet famous, and it’s easy to see why…
Two Red Panda cubs, one male and one female, were born at the WCS’s (Wildlife Conservation Society) Prospect Park Zoo this summer and have made their public debut.
The Red Pandas at the Prospect Park Zoo, in Brooklyn NY, are a subspecies from the eastern portion of the Himalayas and are known as Styan’s Red Panda (Ailurus fulgens styani). Their native habitat is, more specifically, southern China and northern Burma.
Styan’s Red Panda has been distinguished as having a longer winter coat, bigger skull, more strongly curved forehead, and darker coloring than the Western Red Panda (Ailurus fulgens fulgens).
