On July 29 at Guangzhou’s Chimelong Safari Park, a mother panda, named Juxiao, birthed these adorable likkle panda triplets. This week, the pups, which are currently in the ‘naked mole rat’ stage, are billed as the first panda trio to ever have survived, reports SBS.
Many experts disagreed, however, saying that while they’re currently the only known living panda trio, it’s too early to tell if they’ve “survived.” Said one panda expert, surnamed Zhao, “We can only say they are surviving once they reach six months. For now they are indeed the only surviving triplets.”
Hopefully the three fuzzketeers will have a prosperous life ahead of them posing with NBA stars, and generally inspiring more ‘awwwwws’ than the tongue depressor test.
