Berlin zoo’s panda twins take their 1st public tumbles

BERLIN (AP) — Pit and Paule, the new star attractions at Berlin’s zoo, have made their first foray into the limelight, climbing and tumbling around their cub-proof indoor enclosure to the delight of the cameras. Keepers had prepared the glass-enclosed space for the five-month-old twins’ public premiere on Wednesday, removing any dangerous obstacles and filling in a water basin to prevent the endangered giant panda cubs from being injured. Their mother, Meng Meng, kept a close eye on her cubs, pulling them down from any heights she considered too dangerous. More details in Friday’s Borneo Bulletin
