Panda gives birth to surprise twins!

Added On August 18, 2016

Panda twins have surprised zoo keepers at the Schonbrunn (Shawn-brun) zoo in Vienna.

The giant panda mother gave birth and is rearing her babies in the breeding box behind the scenes.

Keepers thought they heard two babies squeaking, but they weren't certain until Friday when they saw the twins on camera for the first time.

Quite often when giant pandas give birth to twins, the mother usually only rears the stronger of the two, so zoo keepers will be keeping a close eye on them, but they say, so far both babies seem to be doing well.

According to Chinese tradition, the young pandas won't be named until they are 100 days old.
