Panda at Chongqing Gives Birth to Cubs


Yaya from Chongqing Zoo has given birth to twins on the 4th of September 2011.

These are the third and fourth cubs that Yaya has given birth to in the ten years that she has been at Chongqing.

According to "Dragon Soft" one of the cubs is male and has been transferred to Bifeng Xia. The other will remain with Yaya, in the sweltering 40C heat of Chongqing - that's way too hot for pandas, lets hope the air conditioning keeps working.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed that her namesake in Memphis USA, has a cub soon as well.

Congratulations to Yaya and to all the people who keep her safe at Chongqing.
