Giant Panda Cubs Update – One Month -- at the Toronto Zoo



Toronto, ON, Friday, November 13, 2015: At one month old, our twin giant panda cubs are healthy and continue to grow. The larger of the two cubs now weighs over one kilogram, with the smaller cub not far behind at approximately 750 grams. The undercoat (or insulating hair) continues to grow in thicker and whiter, making the areas on their bodies where the skin is not pigmented black, look much whiter.They truly look like giant pandas now.

Er Shun continues to be a great mother and the cubs are progressing very well. However, it is still a very critical time for these little cubs.
