One of the newest inhabitants at the Cincinnati Zoo & Botanical Garden finally has a name.
On Monday, the zoo announced the name and gender of the red panda cub born earlier this summer. She's a girl, and her name is Shenmi, or "Mimi" for short.
Shenmi's name translates from Chinese and means mystery.
The zoo held a poll on its website to help name the red panda, and Shemni was the winning choice.
She was born July 16 to mother Lin, though the zoo didn't announce her birth until the end of the month. Shenmi's birth was a little unexpected, as Lin had been previously pregnant but lost the first pregnancy earlier in 2021.
After she lost her first pregnancy, Lin's later weight gain was initially attributed to her diet of cicadas and mulberries.
Shenmi and Lin spent most of their time in the nest box after her birth. The zoo said Shenmi will begin exploring the outdoor yard sometime next month.
