The world's only surviving panda triplets turned 100 days old Wednesday.

The world’s first surviving panda triplets marked a major milestone as they turned 100 days old Wednesday. The healthy cubs, who live at the Chimelong Safari Park in China, each weigh about 11 pounds and each have two small teeth. They take turns spending five-day cycles with their mom. "It is imperative to help the triplets form a good relationship with their mother and keep them in close contact. We hope that they can live together if the cubs grow healthily," said the park’s Dong Guixin. It’s Chinese tradition to name pandas at 100 days, but the park has held off naming the trio. They are asking the public for suggestions. — Read it from AP via Yahoo
