 Happy International Red Panda Day!   Fun Fact: Red Pandas have pseudo-thumbs that allow them to hold and grip objects. For example, bamboo when eating, paintbrushes to paint, and even feathers like the one Parker is holding! Visit the Birmingham Zoo today to meet our Red Pandas: Parker & Sorrel! . . #internationalredpandaday #bhamzoo #birminghamzoo  @itskellinotkelly
