For the first time in the history of the zoo, a Red Panda was born at Buttonwood Park Zoo, Massachusetts.

336 grams in weight and just over 10 inches long was the cub 21 days after its birth.

Mother Marie and the cub are currently behind the scenes. 3-year-old father Jacob is respectful and giving them space.
