WINSTON, Ore. — Wildlife Safari in Winston just added two new faces to its park, a pair of objectively adorable red panda brothers.

“The pandas came all the way from the Virginia Zoo. Remi and Freddie are their names, and they are doing great. They both love apples and grapes, and Freddie is especially fond of bananas,” said Sara Healas, the Wildlife Safari Village supervisor.

Both of the pandas are two years old. Healas said that Remi tends to be more relaxed and friendly, while Freddie seems more active, but shy.

Wildlife Safari says that the pair was born to red pandas Masu and Timur in Virginia and now are part of the red panda Species Survival Plan — a network of parks that work together in an effort to save animals on the verge of extinction. Red pandas are listed as an endangered species in the wild.

“We’re excited to bring these new little guys to Douglas County,” explained Dan Van Slyke, the park’s executive director. “We know they’ll make a great addition to all of the Village animals in their new spot near the gator house exhibit. We can’t wait for people to come see them and all the really exciting animals out at the park.”

Both of the red panda brothers can be seen in the Safari Village during the park's normal operating hours, from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m. every day.
