Your day just got 14 times better
And the entire world said: Aww!
It was panda-monium – well, the kind you can sleep through – at the Chengdu Research Center of Giant Panda Breeding
on Monday, when 14 artificially bred cubs were placed together in a crib for the first time since their birth a few months ago.
While the fluffy babies weren't particularly into posing for pictures, they managed to make a memorable debut nonetheless, adorably snoozing through their time in the spotlight. Other times, keepers held up the tiny black and white cubs
, whose eyesight is not yet fully developed.
In addition, because some were born earlier in the summer than others, the cubs range in size. "The eldest cub weighs a bit less than [8 lbs.] and the youngest weighs only about [1 lb.,]" one keeper said. The new additions will join the center's 128-member giant panda family. Consider this photo their official birth announcement!
