The rare panda triplets born in China are thriving.

The world’s first set of surviving panda triplets is celebrating two months since their birth in China in late July. At this point, the cubs are considered much more likely to survive because they’ve made it beyond the delicate newborn phase. The baby bears take turns spending time with their mom, Ju Xiao, and being bottle fed in the nursery.

More than a million entries have been submitted in a worldwide naming contest. — Watch it at Today
