Playing Soaking Up the Sun: Twin Baby Pandas Venture Outside for the First Time

These twin baby pandas finally got to see the great outdoors this week.

Ya Lun and Xu Lun, who are nearly 7 months old, explored everything in sight in their outside habitat at Zoo Atlanta on March 24.

Ya Lun, who is the adventurer of the pair, wasted no time climbing on rocks and playing with a rope while her sister Xu Lun was a bit more reticent, according to zoo officials.

Zoo officials said it’s no surprise that the cubs’ mom, Lun Lun, waited so long to let the babies out to play.

“Lun Lun followed this instinct with Ya Lun and Xi Lun, remaining with the cubs in behind-the-scenes dens until late December 2016, when she began exploring the option of taking the cubs into their dayroom habitat,” a zoo official said.

The cubs are still getting comfortable outside, but they’re definitely enjoying the spring weather.
