Toronto’s Panda Twins

Toronto's Panda Twins

Canada’s Toronto Zoo is delighted one of its resident Giant Pandas has given birth to twins.

Er Shun gave birth to her two guinea pig-sized cubs thirteen minutes apart.

They were conceived through artificial insemination using sperm from her Toronto Zoo partner and frozen sperm from two other China-based pandas.

The twins are the first to be born since the zoo accepted the pandas on loan from China in 2013.
