(An oldie but a goody. A Red Panda trying to do a full-body Ninja Assassin slam on an unsuspecting Punkin. Purrfect for Halloween.)

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.

And after an exhaustive search of dozens and dozens of red panda videos, (squee!) here is a little huff-quack:

Hai! Karate!

Be careful how you use it.*

The proud first-time Mama is named Sorrel. What will the cubs’ names beeee?! (singsong)

Sorrel is being the best new Mama ever, but we think all red panda Mamas should check out How to pick up a baby Red Panda in 5 easy steps!

The cubs are still in seclusion until this fall. But zoo visitors can view Sorrel and her cubs on a video monitor.

Here are some photos by Washington City Paper intern Dan Singer who was on the scene as they bundled the furball up. The site says “Rusty appeared to be in a tree close to a row house’s roof. Rusty was caught in a net before being placed in a crate.”

______________

Washington DC CO Peeps, this is a Red (Panda) Alert. Rusty The Red Panda has been missing from the National Zoo since 6pm last night. From their Twitter feed:

“Red pandas typically spend the warm daytime hours resting, so it’s likely Rusty is somewhere in or near the Zoo hiding in a tree. If you see Rusty, don’t approach him. Stay where you can safely keep an eye on him & alert the Zoo (202.633.4888) immediately. Remember: red pandas are wild animals, & will bite if cornered or scared. Animal care staff have been combing the trees around the Zoo since 8 a.m. He could be sick & hiding, or someone could have taken him.”

Keep an eye on @NationalZoo for the latest, and let’s keep our Panda Paws crossed that Rusty turns up OK.
