Born 24 June, the two cubs, Waveland (female) and Sheffield (male), named after Wrigley Field’s cross streets, have spent the last few months behind the scenes in their nest box. The cubs have grown more independent and have ventured on exhibit intermittently as they continue to acclimate to
the friendly confines of their ivy-covered habitat. Thanks to a breeding recommendation from the Red Panda Species Survival Plan (SSP), which cooperatively manages the endangered population, these cubs are the second set in two years for Lincoln Park Zoo’s breeding pair Leafa (dam) and Phoenix (sire). Last year, the zoo celebrated its first-ever red panda cub litter including Clark (male) and Addison (female), now thriving at San Diego Zoo and Northeastern Wisconsin Zoo, respectively — via Youtube
