Greenville Zoo in South Carolina has updated visitors on its one-month-old red panda triplets in a cute video, with the tiny trio just opening their eyes.

Posting the clip of the red pandas to Facebook, Greenville Zoo said: “So many people are asking about the panda triplets, well here they are.

“As you can see they are still very small, but have recently opened their eyes. All three are still going weight well and look great.”

June 25th Red Panda Weigh-in

If you have been wondering why you haven’t seen the baby red pandas on exhibit, take a look at one from today’s weigh-in. Eyes are still closed, but all three are fat and sassy. Collette has been doing an excellent job raising the triplets and has not required any assistance from the staff to keep their tummies full.

The cubs, two females and one male, are the first set of triplets born at the Greenville Zoo since 2006.

Announcing their birth, zoo director Jeff Bullock said: “At this point, all three cubs are doing well, appear healthy and happy, have good weight, and are active.”

Red pandas, also known as lesser pandas or red bear-cats, are an endangered species native to the Himalayas.
