Subject:Step for a Species under Threat 12 Baby Pandas in a crib
Feeling a little bloated or grumpy…How about 12 newborn pandas too brighten your day.
Say hello to the 12 giant panda cubs as they make their first public appearance since their births.
The fluffy babies were asleep in a shared cot at the panda bear sanctuary where they were born earlier this year.
Their arrivals have meant a boost to the threatened numbers of the black-and-white bears endangered by deforestation in their native China.
The Chengdu Research base in Sichuan started with just six pandas in 1987 and now has 108.
