Panda breeding center in NW China welcomes three newborn cubs

Recently, two pandas named Qinqin and Yongyong from the Qinling Panda Breeding and Research Center delivered three healthy cubs in Xi'an City of northwest China's Shaanxi Province.

The newborn pandas are all females and growing fast. As the mothers were tired after delivery, staff of the breeding center put the babies into the incubators.

Staff indicated that the babies are given to the mothers for feeding every two hours, and after they are fed, they go back to the incubator so the mothers can have enough resting time.

According to the staff at the breeding center, four more pandas will soon give birth.
