three-red-panda-cubs-in-hand.jpg.990x0_q80_crop-smartWould it be a Red Panda? How about…THREE Red Pandas? Got ’em right here. There’s some SQUEAKING to be heard here, so Speakers Up!

They’re just three of seven born in the last month to various moms (Nutmeg, Regan and Leo Mei) at the Smithsonian Conservation Biology Institute.

Nutmeg is rearing her two little goobers- the Smithsonian team is taking care of the others.

Greetings From Corgifornia!

1This past Saturday, nearly 500 Stubbulars gathered at San Francisco’s Ocean Beach (HOW did I NOT know about THIS) for the annual Nor Cal Corgi Con.

The Stubbulars brought with them about 1000 hoomins, from as far off as Washington State and Nevada.

Proceeds will be donated to Corgi Aid and Muttville Senior Dog Rescue.
