14 baby pandas cuddle in a crib
Too much cuteness in one place!
Fourteen fuzzy black and white giant panda cubs were introduced to the public in an epic photo op at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding in China on Monday.
The baby bears were all artificially bred at the facility and were born between July and September.
About 80 percent of the world’s 1,000 endangered pandas live in China’s Sichuan province, which is where Chengdu is located. Monday was the first time the 14 cubs were in the same place at the same time.
A total of 20 cubs were born at Chengdu this year, with 17 surviving.
