Twin red pandas made their public debut at Sydney’s Taronga Zoo on Wednesday, the latest additions to a breeding program that aims to ensure the survival of the endangered species.

Zoo keepers cuddled and showed off the three-month-old males, named Jinshu and Tenzin, trying to weigh the wriggling cubs on some scales.

Red pandas are found across the Himalayan mountains and foothills of northern India, China, Nepal and Bhutan. Experts believe as few as 2,500 survive in the wild where they are threatened by deforestation and poaching.
