A zoo in southern China has been proud to announce the unusual birth of a set of triplet panda cubs.
The three cubs are the first panda triplets in the world to survive. They currently weigh 230 grams, 245 grams and 333 grams, much heavier than when they were first born two weeks ago. The 12-year-old mother gave birth to the triplets at the end of last month in a safari park in south China's Guangdong Province. The park held off the announcement of the birth until it was certain the cubs would survive.
