Giant panda Cheng Da gave birth to two female panda cubs earlier this week in Chengdu.
 
One of the cubs weighed only 42.8 grams, making it the lightest panda cub on record,
 
When the panda cub was born in Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, keepers and experts were very nervous and surprised, because its weight was only a quarter of that of an average panda cub.
 
Experts immediately took special care of the cub and started monitoring its vital signs 24/7.
The cub is now in a stable and healthy condition.
 
However, experts warned that there are still many uncertainties in the future, and they have promised to apply their knowledge in helping the cub to grow healthily.
