The one-year-old male Red Panda will soon keep the twelve-year-old female Red Panda Shang company.

Shang had been living alone since the death of male Red Panda Liang last year. Due to her age — which is high for Red Pandas — the zoo has announced in a press release that it will take in another female Red Panda. This is to provide for offspring.
