DECATUR -- The Scovill Zoo welcomed a new member to the family Thursday. Red pandas, Clay and Kaydee, gave birth to a baby boy named Tusa. He's about five weeks old and one of only two cubs to survive. He's the first red panda to be born at the zoo. Red pandas are indigenous to Southeast Asia. The zoo hopes to try for another baby next year.
