Hong Kong: A zoo in China on Tuesday announced the birth of extremely rare panda triplets considered to be the world’s first known surviving trio.
The three cubs were born in the early hours of July 29 at the Guangzhou’s Chimelong Safari Park in China.
According to Guangzhou zoo officials, all three panda babies and their mother, Juxiao, meaning “chrysanthemum smile”, are in good health.
While the triplets were delivered within four grueling hours of each other, a video from the zoo showed Juxiao sitting in the corner of a room and licking them after they were born.
As Juxiao was too exhausted to care for her cubs, they were initially put into incubators while she regained her strength. Now she is nursing her babies with assistance from feeders throughout the day.
“It was a miracle for us (the births) and exceeded our expectations,” the safari park’s general manager Dong Guixin was quoted as telling to AFP.
“It’s been 15 days. They have lived longer than any other triplets so far,” Dong said.
China’s Sichuan Wolong National Nature Reserve has said that although the trio are too young to be officially recognised as “surviving”, they are the only known panda triplets alive.
Dond said the cubs were naturally conceived when the 12-year-old Juxiao was paired with the 17-year-old father, Linlin, at the zoo.
“In September last year, we made them neighbours so they could see each other and get familiarised with things such as smell. Juxiao also had to do more exercise to strengthen herself (for the pregnancy),” he said.
“The triplets can be described as a new wonder of the world,” a statement from the safari park added, describing mortality rates among newborn pandas as “extremely high”. Pictures taken earlier this month of the triplets showed the pink-coloured cubs inside an incubator with their eyes closed and bodies thinly covered with white fur.
As of now, the cubs have not yet been named publicly and their sex has not been disclosed as well.
