Twin baby pandas born in August in Berlin have made their first public appearance. "Meng Xiang" and "Meng Yuan" are the result of China's "panda diplomacy" – Beijing allowed their parents to come to Germany in 2017.
The Berlin Zoo has revealed its star panda cub twins to the press ahead of their official introduction to the public. The zoo will take extra measures to handle the expected crowds.
Berlin Zoo has ignored calls to name its panda cubs Hong and Kong in support of ongoing protests. Instead, its first panda cubs have been given more traditional names.
Unable to determine the gender of two newborn panda cubs, zoologists in Berlin have called on Chinese experts for help. Nearly a month old, the cubs spend their time eating, sleeping and cuddling with their mom.
After several fruitless attempts, Berlin is celebrating its first ever panda birth. The mother, Meng Meng, and her two new cubs are doing well, the zoo director has revealed.
