In the second installment of our new series catching up with our keepers during lockdown, we chat with carnivore keeper Kristin about our red panda whānau!

Red panda are classed as carnivores due to their digestive systems, and as Kristin explains, as they don't eat meat they need to eat a considerable amount of bamboo to keep them full - in the wild they can spend up to 13 hours each day foraging for food!
