On the morning of Dec 26,2021, large swathes of snowflakes suddenly landed on the Shenshuping base of the China Giant Panda Conservation and Research Center in Southwest China's Sichuan province. The giant panda Pingping is playing in the park with two four-month-old cubs, and they see the snow falling from the sky for the first time. They roll in the snow, a new sensation and skill on their growing path.

At the Shenshuping base in the Giant Panda National Park, 24 cubs from 15 embryos were bred in 2021, including nine pairs of twins. It marked a 100 percent survival rate. Since July 17, 2021, the returnee giant panda Zhenzhen gave birth to a pair of male twin cubs, and the panda center officially entered the calving season. After Zhenzhen saw her first cub, she immediately held it in her arms to soothe the newborn baby.
