Fact of the Day: Panda Twins

Panda mothers give birth to twins about 50% of the time. However, the grim part of this is that the weaker twin will most likely die, as mother pandas in the wild only seem to be able to raise one cub at a time.

  6. The panda couple loaned to Canada had twins and both lived. They're all at the Calgary Zoo right now, after a five year stint in Toronto. We're going to drive down and see them in due course. I saw pandas in Winnipeg about 30 years ago.

  9. Well, it is interesting that one set of twins did live. Maybe the Mom Pandas just don't take care of two of the sometimes. Sad story though.
