Two red pandas born at the Kansas City Zoo this summer are now on display.

The males of the endangered Asian species weighed less than 4 ounces at birth and now weigh more than 4 pounds each. The zoo has named them Ru and Junjie and says their favorite food is biscuits soaked in apple juice.

The red panda exhibit is located on the Tiger Trail, near the Australian area of the zoo.
