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."
