Little pandas meet their mother – level 3

22-12-2014 07:00

This is probably the cutest thing you’ll see today – the world’s only surviving panda triplets have been reunited with their mother for the first time since birth.

The adorable moment was caught on camera at the China Chimelong Safari Park.

The rare panda triplets were born in July and so it’s not surprise that mum was happy to see them, scooping up two of the baby pandas, while not waking the third.

Keepers at the park say the trio is in a good condition and strong enough now to meet their mother. They’re also helping mum feed the triplets and stay with her babies, helping them to learn survival skills.

Triplet births within pandas are very rare, given their low reproductivity.

Difficult words: triplets (three babies or animals which are born at the same time), reunited (to come together again), adorable (something which is adorable fills you with love), scoop (to pick something up), condition (health), reproductivity (when a person or animal does not have many children), survival (staying alive).
