BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) - The 8-year-old female red panda, Sorrel, at the Birmingham Zoo is pregnant.

An ultrasound exam showed at least one cub, but red pandas typically give birth to one or two young. Once the cub or cubs are born, the Zoo's staff will continue to monitor their growth and habits via live video.

This birth is especially exciting because red pandas are endangered, and their survival continues to decline in the wild.
