After being abandoned after birth, two red panda cubs were rescued by an unlikely surrogate- a white dog in a zoo in Taiyuan in north China’s Shanxi province. The two red panda cubs, born on June 25, are now thriving. The canine wet nurse belongs to a farmer from a nearby suburb. She is raising the two panda cubs, along with her birth pups, like they are her own. At 3-weeks-old, the baby red panda cubs have yet to open their eyes and have doubled in length to 20 centimeters. Unlike the more well-known, bear-like giant pandas, red pandas resemble raccoons with long bushy tails. There are believed to be fewer than 2,500 adult red pandas in the world.
