Newborn giant panda triplets, which were born to giant panda Juxiao (not pictured), are seen inside an incubator at the Chimelong Safari Park in Guangzhou, Guangdong province August 9, 2014.

Guangzhou's Chimelong Safari Park in southern China released a photo of the pink and hairless babies laying next to each other in an incubator. It also unveiled a video showing one of the cubs fumbling toward its mother, Ju Xiao. The babies were born on July 29 and appear to be in good health. They are expected to survive and if so, will be the only known set of living panda triplets.
