BERLIN (AP) — A Berlin zoo says a rare red panda has been born, only a few months after its parents were brought to the German capital from India.

The little cub was first discovered on June 6 in its mother’s cave.

It is the size of a guinea pig now. The Tierpark Zoo said Thursday the yet-unnamed animal is the 10th red panda to be born in Berlin as part of an international breeding program to help protect the endangered animals.

The red panda is originally a native to the eastern Himalayas and southwestern China.
