It is the first time that there have been seven panda twins, and all of them have survived, said a staff member.

It is reported that there are still four or five pregnant pandas awaiting delivery.

On Aug. 19, a 5-year-old brown-and-white giant panda was presented to the public first time. Two days later, several panda newborns also made their debut in Sichuan Province, where the reproduction base and preserves are located.

And last weekend, a pair of pandas were born to Mei Xiang at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C.
