23 cute Giant Panda cubs make public debut

CHINA (WCBD) — A group of 23 panda cubs made their public debut at a panda breeding research base in China on Thursday, ahead of China’s National Day.

The pandas are between one and four months old. The cubs laid on their bellies, occasionally exerting some effort to crawl a few inches forward. According to Chinese state media, the Chengdu Giant Panda breeding research base has welcomed almost double the number of newborn pandas this year.

The International Union for Conservation of Nature recently downgraded the species fro “endangered” to “vulnerable” on its red list of threatened species.
