New Born Panda Triplets Doing Well

A Chinese zoo revealed pictures of the world’s first surviving panda triplets and said they are very healthy.

“It was a miracle for us and the births exceeded our expectations,” Dong Guixin, the manager of Chimelong Safari Park, where the babies were born, said this because of the low birth and surviving rate of pandas. Chengdu Research Base for Giant Panda Breeding said only about one-third to one-half of pandas born in China survive past infancy, as reported by CNN.

The trio weighted 83 grams, 90 grams and 122 grams at birth and are doing well under their mother’s care.

“They now weigh nearly two times what they did when they were born,” Dong said.

According to The Guardian, even though the triplets are doing well, an official from Sichuan Wolong National Nature Reserve said they are still too young to be officially announced surviving.

“We can only say they are surviving once they reach six months. For now they are indeed the only surviving triplets,” the official said.

The 12-year-old mother, Juxiao, which means “chrysanthemum smile” in Chinese, gave birth on July 29 in the Chinese park. Dong said the delivery took four hours. Juxiao was paired with 17-year-old Linlin in September last year.
