Zookeepers Shocked When Pregnant Panda Gives Birth To Twin Cubs

When a giant panda is born, it’s always a special occasion. This is because the giant panda used to be an endangered species. Thanks to organizations like the Schönbrunn Zoo in Vienna, Austria, the giant panda is now considered as an animal that is “vulnerable” to extinction instead of endangered.

When their giant panda Yang Yang gave birth in August it turned out to be double the special occasion, according to Bored Panda. That’s because Yang Yang gave birth to twins. The only thing is that the zookeepers at the Schönbrunn Zoo didn’t quite realized that at first. They thought Yang Yang was only have one baby.

This is because when Yang Yang had a scan it showed that she was carrying only one child. However, when she gave birth they heard the squeal of a second baby. When new pandas are born the zoo staff generally stays away from momma panda and her cubs unless a dire situation requires their intervention.

Zookeepers were, however, able to confirm that there was a second cub after watching the new family from a surveillance camera that was placed at the top of Yang Yang’s cage. The adorable video footage shows the new mother cuddling and licking her two little baby cubs.
