UTICA - The Utica Zoo has new tenants – two new red panda cubs.

The zoo provided photos and video of the pandas because it’s too early for the general public to see them just yet. The zoo says they’ll be available for viewing in person on September 21st, which happens to be International Red Panda Day.

One panda cub is a boy and the other is a girl. They were born on July 6 and haven’t been named yet. They are the cubs of Ming Yue, the mother, and Muse, the father, and are the second set of cubs the parents have had. They weighed approximately .26 pounds at birth, which the zoo says is approximately the weight of a stick of butter.

The zoo also announced a new fundraising campaign for their International Red Panda Exhibit. The zoo says they are raising approximately $700,000 for the new exhibit space.
