Two baby red panda brothers cuddled during their routine doctor checkup in a video published Tuesday.

The two panda cubs were born Aug. 27 at the Denver Zoo, Inside Edition reported. The cubs are from the second litter born to parents Faith and Hamlet.

In this heartwarming clip, doctors checked their eyesight, heartbeat, temperature, and weight. The two cubs squirmed around while being held by the doctors, and then cuddled following their check-up.

WATCH:

The pandas, currently weighing only one pound, are too young to be placed on display at the zoo, so they are currently bonding with their mother outside the public eye. When they are older they will join their father in the permanent exhibit.

Red pandas, native to the Himalayas, grow only slightly larger than cats and are currently listed as endangered species, according to WWF.
