It took less than a month.

The Utica Zoo has announced that their popular Red Panda Encounters are officially sold out for 2018.

The Zoo had announced on August 30 that they had 10 encounter spots left, but here we are less than a month later and they're gone.

Don't worry though, the Utica Zoo says they'll announce dates for their 2019 Red Panda Encounters soon.

Meanwhile the Zoo offers other encounters with their Nigerian Dwarf Goats, Bactrian Camels, California Sea Lions, and African Lions!
