Born on July 29, the three fluffy cubs are the only known panda triplets alive today. While they each weighed less than a third of a pound when they were born, each tyke has now grown to a whopping 11 pounds, according to the Associated Press

Now that the three — who have yet to be named — have reached the 100-day mark, they will be displayed in the park for limited times while they take turns living with their mom for five-day periods.

“It is imperative to help the triplets form a good relationship with their mother and keep them in close contact," Dong Guixin, general manager for Chimelong Safari Park, told the Associated Press.
