Panda Cub Twins are Reunited With Their Mom and It's Unbelievably Touching

December 16, 2016

Giant panda cub twins Ya Lun and Xi Lun were born at the Zoo Atlanta on September 3. They're growing quickly, but far from being "giant."

They each weigh roughly 9 pounds. They're starting to learn how to use their little wobbly legs to walk and it is beyond precious!

Ya and Xi mean elegant and happy. Together paired with their last name, Lun, their names translate to Lun Lun's elegant and happy daughters. Aww!

Lun Lun, their mother, recently got to spend time with both of her babies together for the first time! It's a huge milestone for this panda family.

Up until recently, Lun Lun has just been brought a panda baby one at a time so that she could have time to familiarize herself with the idea that she has two different babies to tend to. Now that she's aware of this, the babies have been brought to her enclosure so that she can raise them in a natural habitat.

This lifestream video of their enclosure shows us that Ya and Xi are getting pretty darn good at moving around.

It's also pretty apparent that they're loving their new living arrangements with mom.

The family will make their public debut in late 2017 so keep an eye open for these beauties!
