Zoo Atlanta celebrates birthday of only giant panda twins in US

ATLANTA - Giant panda twins celebrated their second birthday at Zoo Atlanta on Friday.

Ya Lun and Xi Lun, the only giant panda twins in the United States, were honored with ice cakes and birthday boxes. 

They also got their fair share of biscuits and bamboo.

The twins officially turn two-years-old on Labor Day, but the zoo decided to start the party a little early.

Fewer than 1,900 giant pandas are estimated to remain in the wild, according to Zoo Atlanta. Of these, more than 1,200 live inside nature reserves.
