China Debuts Its Newborn Panda Twins

Visitors to a panda breeding center in China got the first, up-close view of twin pandas born just one day earlier.

The pandas were born Monday at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding to their mother, 7-year-old Kelin, the Associated Press reported.

The cubs were conceived through artificial insemination, part of China’s effort to increase the panda population. The twins’ mother was artificially inseminated in January, according to the AP.

The chief administrator at Chengdu said the twins were born in good condition based on their body temperature and milk consumption.
