Lincoln Park Zoo's red panda cubs are getting ready to make their public debut this week. The cubs Clark and Addison(fitting names for the Cubs' playoff run) will go on display in the Kovler Lion House for the first time on Thursday afternoon, the zoo announced.


Clark, a boy, and Addison, a girl, have spent the summer bonding with their mother after their birth in June. The zoo was able to observe the family in their nest with wireless cameras, mammal curator Mark Kamhout told CBS. Watch some of the adorable footage below:

The cubs have been very playful and curious so far but it's not clear how they will react to seeing thousands of people when they debut in the lion house.


"It depends on the species. Sometimes they can be a little more shy, but other times they come out and they're like, 'Hey, this is new. It's really fun,'" Kamhout said.
