The panda twins born Monday to Lun Lun and Yang Yang at Zoo Atlanta have been confirmed to be two males.
That means that their mother Lun Lun has given birth to five male cubs while at Zoo Atlanta
Panda mothers tend to care for only one of a set of twins, so the cubs are being rotated between time spent with Lun Lun and care from the zoo’s veterinarians and animal management teams.
According to a statement from the zoo, “Lun Lun is a protective mother, posing occasional challenges for staff as they attempt to rotate the cubs on a regular schedule.”
The cubs are expected to make their debut sometime this fall. They can be viewed on the PandaCam www.zooatlanta.org/pandacam and on a variety of social media
