GUANGDONG, Aug.29, China Daily - Giant panda triplets born a month ago at a zoo are healthy and putting on weight, a manager said on Thursday. The cubs were pink when they first appeared but have started to grow black and white fur, said Dong Guixin, general manager of the Guangzhou Chimelong Safari Park in Guangdong province.
The triplets' weight increased from 90.5 grams, 83 grams and 124.4 grams when they were born on July 29 to 1,014.5 grams, 1,013.2 grams and 1,227.6 grams today.
They are the world's first known surviving panda triplets.
"It is a miracle, as the three cubs are very healthy," Dong said. "They are under the watchful eyes of a team of zoo staff 24 hours a day and are expected to meet visitors four months from now."Read more ...
