    Awwwwwwwwwww twin panda boys born in Atlanta Zoo six days ago....Congratulations to Lu Lu



    Just an update on the Atlanta panda twins....

    This thread was started jut over two years ago when the twin pandas Mei Lun and Mei Huan were born in Atlanta Zoo. They are the only surviving twin pandas still surviving born in a US Zoo. Well they celebrated their 2nd birthday back in July and they are still together in the same enclosure and will be until they reach sexual maturity at about age 4.

    There is a panda cam with the mother of the twins here

    http://www.zooatlanta.org/1212/panda_cam

    also has a video of how they speak panda to communicate with the Mother so they can swap the cubs over

    Do you realise that Panda Mothers can not recognise there own cub? That is what makes it possible to keep swapping the cubs when the panda has twins. In Atlanta they are swapping out the cubs on a daily basis. One cub is with the Mother panda, the other is in a incubator. Next day they are swapped over. The Mother panda does not notice. At 4 months old when they are old enough she will be presented with both cubs to look after and be totally unphased by it!
    In China they take advantage of this by taking cubs with Mothers who are not looking after them correctly and giving the cub to a better Mother. Apparently they dont even notice if the new cub is bigger or has slightly different markings. They think the reason for this is that being solitary animals in the wild they were very unlikely to ever come across another Mother with cubs. Because of that they never developed the skills of telling the cubs apart.....
