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.

Oh, poor Panda, but, it's nature.

Never knew that, a grim fate for one indeed.

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.

Oh no!

That is sad. We saw pandas at the Toronto zoo a few years back. Such beautiful animals!

Sharon said...

That's so sad! But I guess that's nature

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.

I am looking forward to seeing them again in Calgary, I saw them in 1988!
