Brand new teensy bebe panda at Wolong

A panda named Jin Zhu at a Panda center in nearby Ya’an gave birth to twins in the last few days.  One of the twins was big (over 100 grams), but the other one was very small in comparison (only 17 grams).  The big one stayed with mama and the little one was transferred today to Wolong, where they have more equipment and resources to care for such a tiny baby.  Greg happened to be watching the goings-on in the nursery when they brought him in and put him in the incubator.  This isn’t the best photo, but you can at least get an idea of just how tiny he is.

Haize (one of the two pandas we’re helping with) is going to give birth to twins any day now.  When she has her babies there will be 5 pandas at Wolong less than a month old!
