Monday Cute: Watch These Baby Pandas Learn to Walk (All Over Their Mom)

Here are Ya Lun and Xi Lun, two little baby panda cubs. These two siblings live at the Zoo Atlanta with their Mom, who is named Lun Lun. These two twin cubs, who were both born on September 3rd according to People, have begun the process of learning to walk. It’s kind of a tough go.

For now, “walking” looks more like “wobbling,” as the cubs slowly make their way around their mom—and get plenty of hugs and cuddles from her as a reward for their troubles. The cubs’ mom only recently got introduced to her own cubs, who are now old enough and big enough that they will soon be ready to live in a shared enclosure with her and learn the ropes of all things panda from her going forward.

This adorable panda family is not available to be seen yet by zoo visitors, but you can watch them on Animal Planet’s 24/7 panda cam. As I write this post, all three pandas are taking a nap together. Who knows what they’ll be doing by the time you read this? You better go check in on them.
