Research center in NW China welcomes its 41st captive-born panda cub

A giant panda named An An gave birth to its first cub – a 132.8-gram female – at the Qinling Giant Panda Research Center in northwest China's Shaanxi Province on Monday, bringing the total number of the center's captive-born panda cubs to 41.

Previously in August, the center had also welcomed panda twins, both of whom are healthy.

The center has made breakthroughs in some key technologies for hormone determination and artificial breeding in recent years, helping grow the population of pandas in captivity in the Qinling Mountains.
