One of a pair of recently born twin pandas is held by a veterinarian during its presentation to the media at Madrid Zoo & Aquarium on Thursday. The twin pandas were born on Sept. 7, conceived through artificial insemination in a joint effort by Spain's National Research council and scientists from China. The cubs are the first of their species to be born in Spain since 1982 and only the third litter to be born in Europe, according to Chinese veterinarian Yuan Bo, who traveled from Beijing to assist the birth and first months of the newborns.
