Rare red panda twins born at Whipsnade Zoo in Bedfordshire have taken their very first peek outside.

The pair, named Yin and Yang, were born in June but have stayed in their nest for the last few months.

The Red Panda is listed as "vulnerable" and is thought to be under threat because of habitat loss in their native Nepal, with an estimated population of less than 10,000.
