The public recently got its first glimpse of a winter visitor at Reid Park Zoo. Visitors on Saturday were able to see 7-year-old Princess Lily for the first time. In the next three weeks or so, a male red panda will join her in the habitat until they move to their permanent home in Utah in March.
Red pandas are not related to giant pandas or foxes. They are their own group. If you missed Princess Lily over the weekend, watch the Tucson 12 video to see her and learn more about the red panda species.
