Joburg Zoo's successful Red Panda breeding programme

Since December 2010 Curator of Primates, Katherine Visser has been busy hand-rearing some of the Zoo's most important animals. From feisty BG, the honey badger to three adorable red panda cubs, Poonya, Rom and Arun. BG (AKA Badger Girl) is growing up fast and currently spending her days in the zoo's farm yard section, while the three red panda cubs at only 2 and 3 months old still need around the clock care. During the day this job is primate keeper Sharon's responsibility, while at night its Katherine's job to give the babies there evening and night feed. Click here for more info >>
