Meet Dash, who is our newest, very athletic and inquisitive red panda! Dash was born June 6, 2012 and is from the Granby Zoo in Quebec, Canada. He will rotate on outdoor exhibit with our other male red panda, 16-year-old, Genghis.
The Zoo’s horticulture department grows bamboo shoots that are fed to both Dash and Genghis. Additionally, both love eating biscuits, pears, apples and grapes. Red pandas have a pseudo (false) thumb that helps them grasp bamboo shoots and climb.
Visit Dash and Genghis’ outdoor exhibit located near the Florence Mila Borchert Big Cat Country building.
