Dublin Zoo welcomes two new arrivals with the birth of two red panda cubs
Both cubs are female and this is the second litter born to parents Angelina and Chota, who welcomed a set of twins this time last year.
Mainly active at sunrise and sunset, Red Pandas spend the rest of their time asleep in the trees
The female twins were born in June, however before this week sightings of the new arrivals were rare because they only ventured out of their den at nightfall
Red pandas have thick, dense fur and a long, bushy tail to keep them warm
The fur on the soles of their feet also prevent them from slipping on wet branches
Red pandas are endangered in the wild
