New Panda Twins!

By CamOp Lee

Big news for Panda Fans!  Lin Ping gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl, on July 8th at the Gengda Panda Center in China.  These are the first two cubs ever born at this base, which was built to replace the Wolong Panda Center after it was destroyed in the 2008 earthquake.  You may recongize Lin Ping from the Wolong Grove cam featured this past spring.

There are quite a few other possibly pregnant pandas at Gengda, so who will be next?  Will it be Bo Si, Yao Man, Cui Cui or who?  Only time will tell!

I would like to thank a great panda friend Nong Tako of Bangkok, Thailand for this important news.   We will all be waiting until the next panda gives birth there!

We can’t wait!

Watch more pandas live here!
