On 6 of September this year, two baby giant panda twins were born in the Aquarium of the Madrid Zoo, the fifth and sixth cubs of the giant panda HUA ZUIBA living in Madrid.
At the beginning of September, two technicians from the Chengdu Panda Breeding Base travelled to Madrid to help the zoo team prepare for the birth of the twins and the post-birth care of the babies.
In November, when they turned two months of age, and in accordance with the tradition of naming baby pandas at Madrid Zoo, we had a long-awaited moment – the search for names for our twins.
The zoo’s staff has come up with several names specially prepared for the panda twins, posted on the zoo’s official website, to start collecting everyone’s opinions and finally decide the final names of the baby pandas through the voting results.
Candidate names are:
- You You (友友)
- Jiu Jiu（九九)
- Xing Mu (星木)
- Bing Tang (冰糖)
- Hua He (花合)
- Yue Yuan (月圆)
Only the last two weeks left! If you haven’t voted yet, you have a chance to win free zoo tickets!
