When giving birth, if a panda produces twins, they’ll commonly abandon one panda cub and focus on raising the other one. But for this panda, her humans have developed a fantastic solution.

Inspired by a clever researcher, this wildlife refuge has found a way to enable this mother panda to take care of both of her twins, ensuring both receive sufficient attention and care.

By switching out the panda cubs, the mother can focus on one at a time and therefore care for both. But the whole time, this panda is under the impression that she only has one cub.

Seemingly oblivious to the fact that she’s birthed twin panda cubs, this mother cares for each of them the same way. This is such a unique method of providing for both cubs.

The caretakers carefully switch the twins in and out of her cage, requiring tons of patience and trust from the mother panda. The twins are swapped in and out up to ten times a day.

This genuinely heartwarming video shows that human partnership with animals can lead to great success. Being able to provide for both cubs, this panda is raising twins without even realizing it.
