Baby Pandas!

These little ones were born in The Sichuan Wolong Panda Protection and Breed Center in Southern China. The zoo artificially inseminated 38 females. These were the first 16 born and includes 5 sets of twins. The others were due later in the fall. The cubs are weighed and measured every five days by a special panda nurse. The heaviest tips the scale at just over 24 pounds, while the lightest weighs about 11 pounds.

I normally am not about posting gratuitous cute photos just for the heck of it but... Seriously! Have y'all ever seen anything so cute?!?! And OMG check out the claws!
