Belgian zoo welcomes newborn giant panda twins

A Belgian zoo has welcomed the arrival of newborn giant panda twins. Pairi Daiza, in Brugelette, Belgium, said Hao Hao, a panda loaned to the park by China in 2014, has given birth to “two little ‘pink shrimps’ that are in good health and that she is taking care of with extraordinary maternal love”. The twins were born on Thursday, the eighth day of the eighth month, and the park notes that the number eight is considered lucky in Chinese culture.
