PARIS, Aug 2 (Reuters) – Two child pandas have been born on the Beauval zoo in France, mentioned the zoo on Monday, including that the newly born animals had been in good well being.
The zoo mentioned its feminine panda – Huan Huan – had given delivery to the 2 infants within the early hours of Monday.
Huan Huan and her companion Yuan Zi got here to France on mortgage from China in 2012, and their arrival was hailed on the time as an indication of warming diplomatic ties between Paris and Beijing.
Whereas an grownup feminine panda can weigh as much as 125 kilograms (275 kilos), a child panda weighs barely 120 grams (4 ounces) at delivery.
