Three Red Panda cubs were born at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute last month.

Red Panda mom Nutmeg gave birth to two cubs on June 14th and first-time mom Moonlight gave birth to two cubs three days later. Unfortunately, one of Moonlight’s cubs died shortly after birth.

The Red Panda cubs have now opened their eyes and are doing well.
