KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) - The Knoxville Zoo just got a lot cuter.

Two red panda cubs are now calling the Boyd Family Red Panda Village home.

Delilah from the Central Park Zoo and Xui Li from the Cleveland Zoo, came to Knoxville on the recommendation of the Red Panda Species Survival Plan to be raised together by zoo staff.

They can be found next door to their red panda neighbors Tabei and Tenzing.

Tabei and Tenzing were born at the Knoxville Zoo June 1.
