Drusillas Park’s beautiful red panda twins have finally started to venture outside the nest box.
The twins, who are a boy and a girl, have evaded the outside world since their birth on 16 June. However, over the last couple of weeks they have been spotted out and about several times as mum, Mulan leads the way.
Pictures of two red panda cubs, who were born only a few weeks ago, show how they are already exploring their surroundings.
Port Lympne Wild Animal Park welcomed the healthy cubs and say they are 'delighted' with their new arrivals.
The wild animal park announced the arrival of a female red panda, Wanmei, in July last year.
They hoped that she and male red panda, Tiang Ming, would hit it off.
Head of Small Carnivore Section, Neville Buck said, "The fluffy cubs are Wanmei's first and she is being an excellent mum. Tiang Ming is an experienced father so I think they are a great team."
There's not one but two new arrivals at Drusillas Zoo in Alfriston. Red Pandas called Tibao and Mulan have arrived as part of a European breeding programme and it's hoped the pair will, in time, have a baby of their own.
