TORONTO, ON, Monday, February 15, 2016:

Like most families, the Toronto Zoo also celebrates the different milestones and achievements of our families. Today we're excited to announce that our giant panda cubs, who just turned four months old on Saturday, 2016-02-13, are now taking solid steps and are becoming extremely mobile!
