Lee Richardson Zoo in Kansas has announced the birth of three Red Pandas. Fourth-time mother Ember gave birth to the cubs on August 12, 2017. The seven-year-old Red Panda and her cubs are doing well.

“Animal Care staff had been monitoring Ember’s weight, appetite, and behavior closely for the past few months. Ember showed a decreased interest in food and wanted to spend time indoors in the days leading up to the birth, which helped caretakers determine that the birth would be soon,” said General Curator Sarah Colman.

The Animal Care staff members expect the public debut for the cubs in late October or early November.
