Milwaukee Zoo's Red Panda Cub Makes Public Debut

Milwaukee County Zoo’s newest red panda cub, Kiki, made her public debut on Friday, September 20.

Kiki was born on June 7 to father Dash and mother Dr Erin Curry, who was named after a Cincinnati Zoo reproductive physiologist.

Red pandas are easily identifiable by their reddish-brown color and white face markings, Milwaukee County Zoo said. They begin to get adult coloration at around 50 days old, which acts as a camouflage in their natural surroundings.

It is estimated the only around 10,000 red pandas exist in the wild. Credit: Milwaukee County Zoo via Storyful
