Ten panda cubs made their public debut in China’s leading panda reserve Wednesday morning to mark the coming Lunar New Year.
One appeared shy and covered its face with both paws when it saw the crowd, while another went rogue and crawled away from its keeper before being caught.
The pandas range in age from 4 to 6 months, and all resulted from natural mating, according to the China Conservation and Research Center for Giant Panda in southwest China’s Sichuan province.
The black-and-white fluff balls made their appearance in a playground at the center adorned with Lunar New Year’s decorations.
Bamboo baskets of treats were prepared for the pandas, with the Chinese character "fu," meaning good fortune and blessings, written on the outside. (AP)
