The World’s First Known Panda Triplets Have Arrived!

The World’s First Known Surviving Panda Triplets Are Here!They were born on July 29th at the Guangzhou’s Chimelong safari park in China. At first, their mom, Juxiao was too weak to care for her cubs and they had to be put in incubators until she regained her strength. As of yesterday, they were reunited with mom for nursing and are being taken care of 24/7 by a team at the zoo.

The baby panda triplets are a big deal because it’s a pretty rare occurrence and the World Wildlife Fund says there are only 1600 pandas left in the wild. The zoo was apprehensive about announcing the arrival of the new babies being born because there is such a high death rate of newborn pandas. An official from the safari park says “We can only say they are surviving once they reach six months. For now they are indeed, the only surviving triplets.”

The zoo said the babies weighed between 2.9 and 4.4 oz. at birth, and were smaller than the size of a human palm. The triplets are being described as a “new wonder of the world.”

We don’t know the cubs’ gender just yet as it can’t be determined until they are older, and they don’t have names yet either.

The baby pandas are absolutely adorable and I have my fingers crossed that they survive into panda adulthood!
