Unbelievable, the couple Yang Yang and Long Hui should be the happiest parent in the world! Their twins were born on August 23. 2007 at the Vienna’s Schoenbrunn Zoo. Opps, you read it correctly, yes, in the Zoo. Yang Yang and Long Hui are Chinese pandas. In 2003 they were transferred from China to the Austrian Schoenbrunn Zoo in Vienna and will stay there for 10 years in total.
The Zookeepers said that it took a while until they saw the bear cubs. They heard unusual noises coming from an enclosed area to which Yang Yang had retreated. When they looked more closely they found the panda mother Yang Yang had given birth to twins. The strange thing was that the Zookeepers had not known Yang Yang was pregnant because an August 6 ultrasound had shown nothing. Possibly the bear cubs hided behind the greens in Yang Yang’s belly that she eats everyday.Unfortunately one of the twins cubs was died.
The small lovely cub weights about 100 grams which is the smallest bear cub of the world. The bear mom Yang Yang is taking a great care of her baby and she carries her baby either on her breast or in her mouth. Until today, the surviving bear cub is yet unnamed.
Wish the panda couple Yang Yang and Long Hui lots of luck with their lovely bear baby.
