Yasmin’s festive treats

Red panda, Yasmin, is joining in the Christmas celebrations as keepers treated her to some festive fittle.


Using her favourite panda cake recipe – made up of a mix of crushed insects and leaves and a few Yuletide-themed biscuit cutters, keepers designed a range of treats for the 10 year-old, including Christmas trees and stars.

Senior Keeper Jodie Dryden, said: “Yasmin loves panda cake, which she gets twice daily alongside pieces of pear and apple.

“During cold spells we also make up the panda cake using hot water, which she loves tucking into and the Christmas treats were soon gobbled down.”
