Their Facebook post, which has received an impressive 2,300 likes, said: "Our two red panda cubs recently had a health check and we are delighted to see that they are both developing into healthy young pandas!

"Please be aware that both cubs will remain off show in their nest until they are 10 to 12 weeks old and are not currently visible to the public."

The two, as yet unnamed pandas, are the third litter for experienced breeding pair Liwei and An An.
