Two of a Kind! Polar Bear Twins
Born Jan. 7, China’s boy and girl twin polar bears needed emergency treatment when their mother rejected them just four hours after birth.
The cubs, who are now more than 100 days old, are white fluffballs of energy and spend lots of time playing with toys at their home at Dalian Laohutan Ocean Park.
According to one breeder at the park, one cub’s heart stopped beating just after it was born. “While crying, I felt its heart begin to beat again,” she told the Telegraph.
Yum! A caretaker feeds the twins apples. For adult polar bears in the wild, seals are typically a rich food source.
The boy and girl pair, the first twins to live beyond cubhood in China, don’t know life without each other.
The park’s breeders have grown very attached to the adorable duo.
It’s rare for polar bear twins to survive in the wild, according to Reuters. Typically, mothers choose to feed the stronger of the two.
Exactly 109 days after their birth, the male cub is a healthy 35-lbs while the female weighs in at 33-lbs.
