KANSAS CITY, MO (KCTV) -
Two red panda cubs born late last month are thriving at the Kansas City Zoo.
Visitors to the zoo can see them in their nesting box via a monitor at their exhibit on Tiger Trail.
The male cubs are smaller than a can of soup and hungrier than a lion on the hunt, according to a news release from the zoo. The pandas were born June 26.
They weighed 4 ounces on June 27. They have now more than doubled in size.
Mother Gaila and father Fagan are proudly keeping them close for warmth and feeding, zoo officials said. They will stay in for the first three months and stay close to their mother's side.
The pandas will grow to be about the size of a house cat.
Gaila, 2, came to the Kansas City Zoo a year ago from the National Zoo. The recommendation was to breed Gaila with 13-year-old Fagan. He has been at the zoo for 12 years and fathered a cub in 2006.
Only 116 red pandas are in captivity now.
Watch the Kansas City Zoo on KCTV5 at 10 a.m. on Saturdays.
