Mexico City, (UrduPoint / Pakistan Point News - 15th Feb, 2020 ) :Xin Xin and Shuan Shuan are the main attractions at the Chapultepec zoo in Mexico City but what makes them truly unique, zoo officials say, is that they're the only giant pandas in the world not owned by China.
But Xin Xin and Shuan Shuan, with their plump bodies and tender expressions, will be staying put.
The panda is considered a vulnerable species.
He said eight more pandas were born in Mexico between 1980 and 1990 but only four of those survived.
Giant pandas typically live until about 20 in the wild and 30 in captivity.
They average around 100-115 kilograms (220-250 Pounds) and adults stand between 1.2 to 1.9 meters (4-6 feet) tall. Males can weigh as much as 160 kilograms.
