Red panda cubs at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute in Washington D.C., US.

"All of the red panda cubs born at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute this summer are growing! Five cubs—born to Regan, Low Mei and Shama—are being hand-reared by keepers. They are bottle-fed three times a day, and have received their first solid foods. Keepers are offering them bamboo and soaked apple biscuits. So far, the cubs mostly just gnaw on the bamboo and lick the biscuits. The cubs are becoming more mobile, and keepers are starting to see some play behaviors from them."
