Binghamton Zoo Welcomes Twin Red Panda Cubs

CubBThe Binghamton Zoo at Ross Park is happy to announce the birth of twin red panda cubs on Sunday, June 11th to second-time mother, Mei-Li.

The first cub has been with Mei-Li since birth. The second cub was much smaller at birth and the decision was made to add supplemental feedings and they hoped that would allow the cub to stay with mom and sibling.

It was determined that the second cub was going to need additional care and support and was removed for hand-rearing by the Animal Care staff. The staff will be moving forward with the current care plan and will wait for the cub to become healthier before putting it back with Mei-Li.

Keep this in mind when you go to the Binghamton Zoo. Cub A is on exhibit, but may not be visible for several weeks until it is big enough to climb out of the nest box. Cub B is off exhibit while under veterinary care.

They will be hosting a gender reveal party for the red panda twins later this month and you are invited for cake and the revealing at the red panda’s exhibit in the zoo.

This will also kick off a naming contest for the red panda cubs in which you can help name them. I think they should name them Glenn and Traci but that’s just me.

The gender reveal party date will be announced on the Binghamton Zoo’s Facebook page. Follow the growth of the red panda cubs here. The Binghamton Zoo is located at 60 Morgan Road in Binghamton.
