Great news from Calgary Zoo (Canada). The two-year-old Red Panda Sakura gave birth to a female Red Panda cub on July 15, 2015. The yet unnamed baby is the first offspring of Sakura. The 11-year-old Red Panda Dusk is the father of the cub. He lives since 2013 in Calgary Zoo.

As usual, the Red Panda baby will not leave the nesting area for the first three months. After that time it will start to explore its habitat.
