Giant pandas live in central China. Around 1,600 pandas live there. These pandas are free. Around 300 pandas are not free. They live in zoos.

One panda lives in a zoo. This zoo is in Washington. She gets pregnant. She has a panda cub. Four hours later, another cub comes out. She has twins!

She likes her babies. She helps them. People put the pandas into an incubator. They must do this.

Difficult words: get pregnant (to start to have a baby inside your body), cub (a young animal like a panda), incubator (a special machine for babies which are too small).
