  • Veterinarian Anne Burgdorf, left, hand feeds a Red Panda cub through a feeding tube with the help of Leslie Field, Supervisor of Mammals, at the Sacramento Zoo on Monday July 29, 2013 in Sacramento, Calif. The cub hasn't been named yet and has been steadily getting stronger since his birth June 9. The panda is being hand-raised after an injury from its mother and her inability to care for it. Red Panda cubs have a mortality rate of 50 per cent within the first 30 days of life. The staff is hopeful that the cub will thrive with additional attention from keepers and veterinary staff.
