See These Precious Panda Triplets Reunited With Their Mother

The world’s only known surviving giant panda triplets met their mother for the first time on Tuesday at China’s Chimelong Safari Park.

Pandas are notorious for their low reproductive rates so when the triplets were born on 29 July many thought it was both a miracle and near impossible that they would survive.

The cubs were separated from their mother because in previous cases of panda triplets, at least one of the babies died due to their mother’s carelessness or malnutrition.

Keepers said the baby pandas each weigh around eight kilograms and are now strong enough to be in an enclosure with their mother.

“We bring the cubs closer to their mother with the main purpose of training the panda mother to bond with its babies,” said Dong Guixin, General Manager of Chimelong Safari Park.
