Chinese Panda Breeding Center Unveils 14 Panda Cubs

  • VOA News

What's cuter than a baby panda? Fourteen baby pandas.

China's leading panda breeding center on Sunday introduced 14 panda cubs to the public for the first time.

The cubs were artificially bred in the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding and Research Base, in south-west China's Sichuan province.

None of them are older than four months.

The giant panda, an endangered species, is native to China, and biologists and zoologists in the world’s most populous country are working to make sure the adorable animals do not become extinct.

Roughly 80 percent of the approximately 1,000 pandas left in the world live in Sichuan province, the province in which Chengdu is located.
