Atlanta Zoo releases video of first 100 days of baby pandas
ATLANTA, Georgia – Is there anything cuter than a baby giant panda? How about two?
The Atlanta Zoo has released video of the first 100 days of Mei Lun and Mei Huan -- baby pandas who were born at the zoo in July.
Zoo officials announced Wednesday the pandas will be called Mei Lun and Mei Huan, which originates from a Chinese idiom that means "something indescribably beautiful and magnificent."
The cubs were born to 15-year-old Lun Lun, who was artificially inseminated in March. They are the fourth and fifth cubs born at the zoo to Lun Lun and her partner Yang Yang.
The names were selected by staff at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in China. Under a deal between China and the U.S., giant pandas originally from China are only lent to foreign zoos for scientific study for several years.
