Giant panda sisters arrive in Wuhan

On July 11, a pair of giant panda sisters, four-year-old Chun Qiao and three-year-old Pang Niu, arrived in Wuhan, capital city of central China’s Hubei Province.

Born at the Bifengxia Base of China Giant Panda Protection and Research Center in Ya'an, southwest China's Sichuan Province, the pair of pandas will live at the new giant panda hall, which stands at the top of the Wuhan Zoo, with an area of 5,400 square meters.

The hall embraces thermostatic and humidity equipment as well as familiar trees to simulate the environment in Ya'an, which features China’s first large-scale water panda hall.

The giant panda sisters will be unveiled to the public from July 18, after a seven-day period of adjustment to new environment. And they are supposed to stay in Wuhan for a year.
