Eighteen giant panda cubs born in 2018 had a birthday party Thursday in Shenshuping base in Wolong National Nature Reserve, Southwest China's Sichuan province.
All of the 18 cubs are to turn one year old between June to September. Most of them were born in the Shenshuping base of the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda.
Staff with the research center prepared a fancy fruit birthday cake for the panda cubs. Fans of the panda cubs were also invited to attend the party.
There are 9 male and 9 female cubs in total, including three pairs of twins.
The cubs are entering the teething stage, where they become mainly reliant on milk. They do however supplement their diet with two meals of tender bamboo shoot tips each day, allowing them to grind their newfound adult teeth.
Their growth indicators are monitored by their breeders at the research center. The veterinarians also conduct regular physical examinations.
In 2018, 31 panda babies, 15 females and 16 males, were born in the China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda.
So far, the captive population of giant pandas in the center has reached 285, accounting for about 60 percent of the total giant panda captive population in the world.
