Attention animal lovers: China’s adorable panda triplets have celebrated a key milestone!

On Thursday, China’s Chielong Safari Park Zoo’s panda triplets, who are the only living triplet pandas born in captivity, turned one month old. This is big news for the animal world as pandas are difficult to breed. The medical exam shows that the pandas are in good health. “It was a miracle for us and [the births] exceeded our expectations,” Dong Guixin, the safari park’s general manager, said.

The triplets, who were born to mother Juxiao, are not out of the woods yet. “We can only say they are surviving once they reach six months. For now they are indeed the only surviving triplets,” said an official from the center 15 days after the panda triplets were born.
