This Mama Panda Bear Unexpectedly Sets A World Record!
All the staff at the Atlanta zoo had goosebumps due to the intense anticipation! The sweet 15-year-old giant female panda bear named Lun Lun had finally arrived at the end of her pregnancy and to monitor the childbirth, a camera had been installed inside her enclosure.
At exactly 6:21 am on 15 July 2013, Lun Lun gave birth to Mei Lun, but then only a few minutes later something that was totally unexpected happened! Yes, out pops a second panda bear cub, Mei Huan!
In 2013, no giant panda bear had ever been born in the USA and what is more, since 1987 the world had not seen a giant panda bear give birth to twins!
Lun Lun, that is the name of the giant female panda bear, had no problems giving birth to her first daughter Mei Lun.
In fact, all the ultrasounds had always revealed the presence of only one bear cub in her womb. The appearance of the second cub was totally unexpected!
At birth, baby pandas are almost devoid of hair, but in a few days, the characteristic and black-and-white fur appears.
In nature, there are fewer than 2,000 specimens threatened by the cutting down of bamboo forests, which are the essential nourishment of these beautiful animals.
The giant panda bear is in grave danger, this is why the birth of these two new specimens represents the hope of being able to repopulate the species.
Here is the moment when the cubs were born, such an important event would give anyone goose bumps!
