On August 4, France’s Zoo Parc de Beauval welcomed its first panda cubs. The mother, Huan Huan, gave birth to twins. One twin died shortly after birth. Zoo keepers are now working to care for the other twin. The cub is a male. He is pink, hairless, and weighed only 5 ounces (142 g). Because panda births are so rare, they are carefully monitored by experts. There are approximately 1,800 pandas in the wild and about 400 in capitivity.
