Panda Gives Birth to Cub Twins at D.C. Zoo

At the Smithsonian's National Zoo, a mother panda gave birth to a set of twins. The zoo is one of the few in the country that even have panda bears as all are borrowed from China. Panda bears have very low birth-rates, so if these two twins stay healthy and grow up then it will be a fortunate thing for the panda population.

I saw one of them. They don't even look remotely like a panda.

Oh I hope they do well. I saw some once at the San Diego Zoo many years ago, it was such a crowded exhibit.

So cool when I saw this on the news. The zookeepers here at our zoo are trying to have the pandas we currently have to mate before they're shipped back to China in 2017(I think).

I just heard that mother pandas will only feed and nurture one cub, so the attendants need to keep making the swicheroo to keep both cubs fed.
