Atlanta-born giant pandas arrive in China

Posted: Updated:

Two Atlanta-born, giant pandas arrived safely in their new China home Thursday.

According to Keisha Hines with Zoo Atlanta, the pandas arrived at China's Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding, where they will be quarantined before moving to their new habitat.

The pandas, Xi Lan and Po, left the U.S. on Monday. Veterinarians from Zoo Atlanta traveled with the pandas and will remain in China to help them get acclimated to their new environment.
