Checking back in on Cheetach Cub Kiburi
London Zoo's Newest Arrival is in Good Hands

Firefoxes, Unite!

As huge fans of Firefoxes (aka Red Pandas) and Firefox, Mozilla's web browser, we were thrilled to see the two come together for some long overdue corporate / furry synergy. The cubs, born to mom Akkali and father Chewbacca, arrived at the Knoxville Zoo in June and we covered them when their eyes were barely open. Now almost six months old, the cubs are exhibiting the trademark playfulness of their age and the world can watch thanks to Mozilla's sponsorship of a bazillion live cub cams. Additionally, the joint Mozilla / Knoxville Zoo site provides links to adopt a Red Panda (surely a great holiday gift), name the cubs, and watch highlight videos. We have included the "trailer" vids below. Hopefully we will have more to share in the near future. You can follow the latest updates direct from the "Cub Keeper" on Twitter.

From the Knoxville Zoo Red Panda site - Found in the Himalayan foothills of China, Nepal and India, red pandas favor remote, high altitude bamboo forests. Unfortunately, their fragile habitat is being destroyed by logging and human expansion, and their distinctive red fur makes them prey for hunters. As a result, red pandas are endangered, and their future in the wild is uncertain.
