If you're still reeling from the recent departure of Zoo Atlanta's giant panda twins to China, this may help.

The Chattahoochee Nature Center's mission to add a pair of young beavers to its wildlife family has been accomplished. And you're invited.

The center has been looking for non-releasable beavers since the last one at the Camille Creamer Beaver Exhibit died in December, according to a release.

The search took a while because the animals are rarely trapped alive, partially due to their classification in Georgia as nuisance wildlife.

The new pair, who were orphaned after floods and come by way of a rehabilitator in Virginia, will be introduced to the public Saturday at 9 a.m.

Their new home in Roswell includes a 19,000 gallon pond and plenty of willow, oak and sycamore for them to feast upon.
