CANADA, May 9, China daily -- The giant pandas Er Shun and Da Mao, along with their Toronto-born cubs JiaPanpan and JiaYueyue, made their public debut at the Calgary Zoo's Panda Passage on Monday, where the furry family attracted hundreds of eager visitors.

"This is a monumental achievement that required six years of preparations to welcome these giant pandas and thousands of additional visitors to our zoo," said Clément Lanthier, the zoo's president and CEO.
