Giant Panda Twins Born in Macau: Watch the Adorable Video
Not one, but two pandas were born on Sunday after Xinxin the giant panda gave birth to twins. The nine-year-old panda is the first to give birth in Macau, China.
The Macau government released an adorable video of the new mom bonding with her cubs that were born an hour apart. Weighing in at just five and two ounces, the pinkish colored newborns hobbled around as their mother nudged them along:
“Veterinarians confirmed that Xin Xin and the larger panda cub were in good condition, while the smaller one would be taken care of 24 hours a day,” Macau’s home affairs department said in a statement.
The gender of the twins is not yet known, and it will be about a month before we’ll see the black and white fur pattern that distinguishes the panda bear.
The Giant Panda Pavilion in Coloane has been closed to the public since June 14 because of the delivery, but is set to open the doors again July 12.
