Woburn Safari Park in Milton Keynes is now home to its second female red panda, Mambo.
Earlier on in the year the parks new enclosure welcomed its first red panda, Mali, and according to Senior Keeper Laura Ashton, the pair seem to be getting on.
“Mambo’s first instinct was to explore her new home straight away, and we can tell that she is already very relaxed. Naturally, they were a bit wary of each other at first but now that Mambo has settled in, they are getting closer every day.”
A third female will be joining the group later this summer and the trio will be part of the European Endangered Species Programmes breeding programme.
