Cubs for Shui Xiu and Cao Cao


On the 1st of August 2010 Shui Xiu gave birth to twins at Bifengxia. Shui Xiu was injured in the wild and lost a front paw. She was captured in 2008 and sent to Wolong where she was nursed back to health. She has now given birth to her first cubs in captivity.

Cao Cao one of the four pandas that have returned to Wolong to their semi wild training area gave birth to a panda cub in the morning of August 1st. Staff are watching the mum and cub closely but are interfering with the bringing up of the cub, as it is hoped that the cub might be returned to the wild in the future.
