KNOXVILLE (WVLT) -- The Knoxville Zoo has a pair of brand new residents. Zoo officials confirm two baby Red Panda’s were born in captivity earlier in the week.
Their names have not yet been released, but the babies are expected to stay on exhibit with their mother Kumari, while the zoo keeps a close eye on them.
The Knoxville Zoo has become known for its Red Panda’s over the last three decades. They boast more Red Panda births than any other zoo in the nation, and currently have the oldest panda in captivity, Flo who is 18 years old.
