We previously mentioned that Rusty the red panda had gone missing from the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington D.C. and was safely captured on Monday afternoon.
The little baby, who isn't even one-year-old yet, is at the Zoo's vet hospital to make sure he's okay.
We were so worried about the little guy!
Thankfully, the zoo has been keeping us updated:
Now that the little guy is healthy again, the zoo staff was able to start doing the whole detective thing.
They actually have a lead in how the great red panda escape may have happened:
The zoo hopes to have Rusty back in his exhibit by July 4th!
So if you're gonna swing by the Smithsonian National Zoo this Independence Day, go check out Rusty and bask in his cuteness!!
