You might be wondering... Where in Zoo Boise? Do they already have an exhibit for them?

For the time being, they will share a space with the one other Red Panda who is already at Zoo Boise, and that's a 13-year-old "Himalayan Red Panda" named Spud.

Zoo Boise reported that they will be building a new, and much larger Red Panda exhibit. The new exhibit will better match their natural climates and habitats, and it will allow for more space for even more Red Pandas!
