A rare scene captured by CCTV cameras in southwest China.

Cuddling and playing, the pair of wild giant pandas are most likely to be twins. 
Researchers are now trying to collect their DNA samples to find it out.
Twin panda births are actually common both in the wild and at zoos. Giant panda mothers give birth to twins about 50 percent of the time, but due to the difficulty of caring for two cubs simultaneously, typically only one of the twins survives.
And...This is the first time ever that researchers in this part of China have ever got a glimpse of panda twins in the wild.
