Forget About Eyebrow Dots and Coma-Inducing Cute Factor

You should be worried about Huff Quack!

“Bet you didn’t know what a “huff-quack” is, well neither did I! A huff-quack is a vocalization made by a red panda when showing excitement or feisty behavior.” -Tamara H.

These cute little cubs  are Tabei (girl) and Tenzing (boy) who were born in June to first-time mother Scarlett at the Knoxville Zoo, Tennessee.
