On June 3, 2015, we joyfully welcomed a new red panda cub to
the Memphis Zoo family! This sweet baby boy has not been introduced into his habitat, but is currently in the care of his mother, Lucille, while his father Justin is keeping watch in Cat Country! While the pair couldn’t be
happier about their sweet cub, they are having trouble deciding on a name. We
need your help!
If you could name our red panda cub, what would you choose? Starting
Aug. 28 at noon, we will take suggestions for the perfect name in our Red Panda
Cub Naming Contest! Want to submit your name suggestion? Read contest rules

and your favorite red panda fact to the Memphis Zoo’s Facebook page. Name
