The Philadelphia Zoo will introduce its newest red panda cubs on Wednesday morning, PhillyMag reports.
The cubs, a boy and a girl who have yet to be named, were born to 5-year-old parents, Basil and Spark.
According to the zoo, red pandas, also known as "Firefoxes," are endangered due to habitat loss. The little ones join their parents and two other red pandas at the zoo.
"The birth is important in the Zoo’s efforts in red panda conservation," General Curator Kevin Murphy told PhillyMag.
