Koala cub emerges from pouch to greet visitors
Adjust font size:

The world's first koala twins recently gave birth to cubs at the Guangzhou Xiangjiang Safari Park, Information Times reported.

One of the cubs emerged from its mother's pouch recently to check out visitors.

Michelle, or Huan Huan in Chinese, delivered its son, Jimmy, last June. Michelle mated with the male koala, Piggy, last April.

Michelle's younger twin sister Amanda, or Le Le, also delivered a cub last month after it mated with Copper in January. The new koala baby will stay in its mother's pouch for eight months before it comes out.

The two new koala cubs now bring the park's koala population to 10.

The park became the first in the mainland to have koala when it imported three male and three female koalas from Australia in April 2006.
