5 Days After A Pregnant Panda Gives Birth, Zookeepers Discover Her Big Secret

Better late than never. This was the case for zookeepers at the Vienna Zoo when it came to discovering some new additions to their animal sanctuary. When a giant panda gives birth, it’s a big deal because these beautiful creatures are considered to be a species that is “vulnerable” to extinction.

That’s why everyone at the Vienna Zoo had gathered around and prepared for Yang Yang the panda to give birth. Everyone was overjoyed when she gave birth to her cub and they all watched as she nursed her newborn for five days. But, according to Little Things, that’s when they realized they had made a huge mistake.

After watching overhead video surveillance of Yang Yang they discovered that she was hiding something… a second cub. The zoo believes in natural rearing and makes sure not to disturb the mother and her new cub unless serious circumstances occur where they have to intervene, so that’s why they didn’t see the second baby.

This adorable video shows Yang Yang cradling her two babies, who were both born at about 15 inches long. Though mother pandas tend to neglected their weaker child, both of these little cuties were doing just fine with their mamma.
