Rare panda triplets survive their first month

It's triple the cuteness: During a medical check-up on Thursday, rare triplet panda cubs showed off how much they've grown since their birth a month ago.

The triplets were given a clean bill of health at the Chimelong Safari Park in Guangzhou, China. The girl and two boys are now at close to one kilogram in weight, and are only the fourth set of triplet cubs known to have been born via artificial breeding. --Catherine Garcia
