Double happiness as China welcomes first giant panda twins of 2016

Twin giant panda cubs are seen in Chengdu(Reuters) – Two healthy baby giant pandas were born at a Chinese breeding research base on Monday, the first twins of the endangered species born this year, media said. The two females, weighing 144 grams (0.14 kg) and 113 grams, are the first offspring of mother Yali, who gave birth at the Chengdu giant panda breeding research base in southwest China's Sichuan province. Giant pandas have seen their numbers hit by human encroachment on the highlands where they survive almost entirely on a diet of bamboo.
