“Miracle” Chinese panda triplets celebrate their 100-day milestone. http://goo.gl/RybU36
HONG KONG (AFP) – A set of panda triplets, the world’s only known surviving trio, celebrated reaching their 100-day milestone in a Chinese zoo Wednesday as the public were allowed to visit them for the first time.
Their births at the end of July were hailed as a “miracle”, given the animal’s famously low reproductive rate, and fears that they may not survive have been quelled.
The two male and one female cubs, which first opened their eyes in September, now weigh six kilograms (13 pounds) each, the zoo said.
Researchers finally discover what a panda looks like when it masturbates http://shst.me/915
After years of research and patient waiting, researchers have finally revolutionized their field by capturing images of a panda pleasuring itself. For some reason they want to share this revelation with the world, and so we pass it on to you, do with it what you will.
The porn footage by the World Wildlife Federation features a single panda in the bamboo wilderness of Sichuan. After snacking on some bamboo for lunch, he looks around, finds himself alone, and decides to have a quick wank. Little does he suspect that the voyeurs researchers at WWF are spying on him – for science!
And now we can all experience this historic moment forever in hilarious GIF form:

Panda gives birth to twins in China
BEIJING – A giant panda has given birth to twins, the first pair of the endangered species born in the world this year, according to a wildlife center in southwest China.
The China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda in Sichuan province said the panda named Haizi gave birth to the two cubs 10 minutes apart on yesterday (June 22).
Staffers at the center, which is part of the Wolong Nature Reserve, say one cub is a female and weighs 79.2 grams. Haizi has yet to release the other cub from her embrace.
Giant pandas have difficulty breeding, with females fertile for only two or three days a year.
Pandas number about 1,600 in the wild, where they are critically endangered due to poaching and development. More than 300 live in captivity, mostly in China’s breeding programs. AP
