Panda fans rejoice over birth of Beijing triplets



Among panda-lovers, it doesn't take much to set off pandemonium.

Tuesday was a banner day for admirers of the rare black-and-white mammals as a zoo in southern China announced that one of its charges had given birth to a set of triplets — which the facility billed as the only surviving trio of pandas in the world.

The cubs were born to mother Juxiao in the early morning hours of July 29 at the Chimelong wildlife park in Guangzhou, China's state-run media said.
