Red pandas ready for romance at Denver Zoo
LOS ANGELES (KABC) -- "A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away" a new red panda named "Chewbacca" came to the Denver Zoo. And he's ready for romance!
Chewbacca only has eyes for the zoo's lone female panda, "Daisy," also a red panda.
Chewbacca came a long way to meet her, all the way from Detroit, Michigan. Daisy arrived in November from Lansing, Michigan.
The Denver Zoo has been very successful in breeding red pandas. A previous breeding pair gave birth to six cubs between 2008 and 2009.
