Endangered red panda born in Britain

STORY: The zoo said Little Red was born on July 16, adding that its gender would be determined in the coming months.

They said the cub's father, named Nam Pang, died about one month before the "miracle" cub was born.

The bushy-tailed and russet-furred bamboo munchers dwell in high-altitude Asian forests. Their population is estimated by experts as anywhere between 2,500 and 10,000 but the species has declined by as much as 50% in the past 20 years, according to a spokesperson from the Toronto Zoo.
