Endangered Red Panda Gives Birth at Toronto Zoo

First Red Baby Panda in Toronto in 24 years

A 2 year-old Red Panda named Ila gave birth to two healthy cubs earlier this week. Red Pandas are native to the Himalayas and Southwestern China. They’re endangered with a limited population of between 2,500 and 10,000 left in the wild.

Keepers are observing the cubs by video cameras to ensure they don’t disturb them from nursing.
