Names wanted for panda triplets
(08-29 19:12)

A zoo in Guangzhou is asking for names for the the world's first surviving panda triplets.
The three cubs are now a month old and in good health in Chimelong Safari Park. The pandas were born to Juxiao in the zoo¡¦ s Chimelong Panda Centre early on August 29th.
The triplets weigh more than a kilogramme each and are being monitored around the clock by experts from the China Conservation and Research Centre for the Giant Panda along with skilled zookeepers from Chimelong.
They also measure the cubs ¡¦ weights, temperatures and heart rates on a regular basis to ensure they are in good health.
The cubs are the fourth set of triplets known to have been born in the last four decades. In 1967, when the first triplets were born, none survived. In 1999 and 2003, only one survived from each birth. --RTHK
