In 2013 there were Giant Panda cub twins born at the Zoo Atlanta. The pandas were the first set of twins to survive being born in the US. On November 5 the cubs were moved over to China, a true home for Pandas. The Cubs had to be moved before 4 years old, so they were removed over the Fall of 2016. The Cubs are homesick over in China, but scientists believe that they will be able to make the adjustment.
