GREENSBORO, N.C. — Taiji, a one-year-old Red Panda who arrived at the Greensboro Science Center in March, will go on display for the public for the first time on Wednesday.
Taiji came to the center from the Red River Zoo in Fargo, North Dakota. He has spent the last six weeks in quarantine to allow for adjustment to his new habitat.
He will be located in the Animal Discovery across from the gibbons.
The exhibit will open at 1 p.m.
Taiji’s name, which means “birthmark” in Mandarin, was given due to the unique black spot on his muzzle.
The Science Center was the only new institution selected in 2012 by the Red Panda Species Survival Plan to acquire a Red Panda.
