Giant panda twins born in conservation centre in China

Who would believe these so tiny pandas are giant pandas?

It's strange that such big mothers give birth to such tiny cubs!

A giant panda has given birth to twins, thought to be the first pair of the endangered species to be born in the world this year.
The tiny creatures were born in a conservation centre in southwest China just ten minutes apart.
One of the cubs is female and weighs about 80 grams, which is less than an average smartphone.
The centre hasn't been able to tell the public about the second cub because its mother hasn't released it from her embrace.
The China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda in Sichuan province said the panda named Haizi gave birth to the two cubs 10 minutes apart on Saturday.
Staffers at the center, which is part of the Wolong Nature Reserve, say one cub is a female and weighs 79.2 grams (2.79 ounces). 

Giant pandas have difficulty breeding, with females fertile for only two or three days a year.
Pandas number about 1,600 in the wild, where they are critically endangered due to poaching and development. More than 300 live in captivity, mostly in China's breeding programs.
