Zoo Atlanta Panda Cub Naps in Nursery

We couldn’t resist sharing this photo from Zoo Atlanta of one of Lun Lun’s twin cubs catching some shut-eye in the nursery. The twins are now more than a week old, and the zoo reports that its twin swapping strategy is working well so far. The cubs take turns spending time with their mom and in the nursery, where they get cozy in incubators with comfy pillows. The zoo says that in this picture, you can already see the cub’s black markings starting to show on its ears, eyes and front shoulders. Once the cubs are a little older, they can spend time with Lun Lun together. If things continue to go well, the baby pandas will be on display to the public in December or January. — Get updates at Zoo Atlanta via Facebook
