KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) - A red panda cub born at the Kansas City Zoo over the summer is about to make his public debut.

The cub named Fei Jai (FAY JAY) will be unveiled to zoo attendees at 10:30 a.m. on Thursday. He was born in June and weights a little more than 4 pounds. The red pandas are a part of the zoo’s Tiger Trail exhibit.

Zoo officials will discuss red pandas with the public 30 minutes before the event.

They say the cub has just begun to eat bamboo. The pandas are indigenous to east Asia. They have red and white markings and bushy tails. They grow to about the size of a house cat.
