Twin Pandas Get Names At Atlanta Zoo


Two twin pandas, formerly known as Cub A and Cub B, received names during a naming ceremony on Monday at Zoo Atlanta. They will now go by the names Ya Lun and Xi Lun. Together their names mean " "Lun Lun's elegant and happy daughters." They are the sixth and seventh offspring off Lun Lun and Yang Yang. It's been 100 days since the twins were born. The 100-day naming ceremony is a Chinese tradition that Zoo Atlanta has followed with all of the cubs' older brothers and sisters as well.

    On Saturday at Zoo Atlanta, the zoological park in Atlanta, Georgia, Lun Lun the Giant panda gave birth to twins. These are the first giant pandas to be born in the United States this year. The animal species, which mainly lives in a few mountain ranges in the Sichuan province of central China, has seen its numbers dwindle as a result of farming, deforestation, and other development - but thanks to concerted efforts of wildlife agencies and a rebounding population in their native China, the Giant panda has recently been upgraded, from "endangered" to "vulnerable."
