Toronto is officially home to a newborn endangered red Panda as the Toronto Zoo made the announcement on Thursday. The zoo said the birth of the 221g baby cub happened on Wednesday, July 13 at 4:11 p.m. This is the third red panda birth at the Toronto Zoo in more than 25 years.
The Toronto Zoo CEO Dolf DeJong said “we are so excited to welcome this baby red panda to the Toronto Zoo family,” This is also the first cub for four-year-old Paprika who arrived at the zoo in November 2021.
The zoo said Paprika is now comfortable enough to leave the nest box for short periods of time. This allows for their wildlife care staff to assess the cub’s health and determine he is male. The two will remain at private quarters of the zoo until ready to be viewed publicly by visitors.
