Germany's First Giant Panda Cubs Are Doing Great at Berlin Zoo
The giant panda cubs are being cared for by their mother, Meng Meng.
Germany is celebrating the good heath of its first giant panda cubs.
The twin pink bears, whose coats have not grown in yet, live with their mother, Meng Meng, at Zoo Berlin.
“On Saturday evening, Berlin’s panda population doubled as Germany welcomed its first-ever panda offspring — two of them!” the zoo announced. The cubs’ father, Jiao Ching, also lives there.
Zoo officials have enlisted help for Meng Meng from China's Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding Zoo.
It is very difficult to get giant pandas to mate, and there are only 1,864 adults living in natural habitats. Every new cub is important to maintaining the species, according to zoo director Andreas Knieriem.
The twin's parents are on loan from China and arrived in Berlin two years ago. The cubs will eventually be sent to China, with Meng Meng and Jiao Qing.
