Rare Panda Twins Born During The Virus Outbreak Are Named ‘Safe’ And ‘Sound’

We figured that we could all use some good news right now, and the precious month-old panda twins sure make a great news story.

The adorable twins are the only pandas born in captivity this year worldwide. They were born to a 16-year-old giant panda named Fuwa (Chinese for – Lucky Doll), at the Chengdu Research and Breeding Base of Giant Panda, last month.

The staff at the research center believed that the birth of the rare panda twins, will bring much-needed change and hope to the world at these difficult times, so they’ve decided to name them accordingly. The first baby panda was named Ping-Ping, meaning ‘safe’, while the other was named An-An, which means ‘sound’.

Watch the precious newborn panda babies here:

The tiny critters are healthy and seem to grow very fast. the two, who only weighed 0.35lb (159.8 ), and 0.26lb (119.5g) at birth, now weigh 2.2lb (1kg), and 1.76lb (800g) respectively. They’ve also managed to grow a fair amount of hair during the past month, and are no longer the two naked mole rats they were.
