You may not have realized it, but the Sacramento Zoo was chosen specifically by the American Zoo and Aquarium Association’s Species Survival Plan to breed red pandas. Yep, it turns out that the poor little guys are on the endangered-species list, and our local zoo is doing its part to help save the species. And guess what? The folks at the zoo are doing something right. In early June, two red panda cubs, Louie and Rocco, were born. The little ones finally have started to venture away from their nesting area and out into their new home—meaning chances are good that you’ll spot the fuzzy cubs. The zoo is open daily from 10 a.m. to 4.p.m. Admission is $6.75-$7.25 for adults, $4.50-$5 for children 3 to 12, and free for children 2 and younger. Oh, and during November, if you bring a nonperishable food item to donate, you’ll receive $1 off a regular zoo admission. Find the cubs at 3930 West Land Park Drive.
