Twin pandas born in Atlanta

Giant panda Lun Lun gave birth to a set of twins on Monday at Zoo Atlanta, making the duo the first giant panda twins to be born in the US since 1987.

Panda twins born, first US set since 1987 (they will get cuter and more recognizable)

What’s better than a newborn baby birthed from a cute and cuddly endangered species? Two of ’em!

Giant panda Lun Lun gave birth to a set of twins at Zoo Atlanta on Monday, making the duo the first giant panda twins to be born in the U.S. since 1987. Although twin births aren’t a rare occurrence for pandas, the survival of the two babies would be unlikely in the wild, as the mother panda tends to care for only one of the cubs and lets the other die. Fortunately, Zoo Atlanta’s animal care teams aren’t as callous and will be periodically alternating the twins between their mother’s care and a nursery. [Source]
