A zoo in southern China has unveiled newborn panda triplets, thought to be the world's first known surviving trio.

Guangzhou's Chimelong Safari Park described the trio, who were born on 29 July, as "a new wonder of the world".

The zoo said in a statement that the cubs were "the only panda triplets that have ever survived", but it added that the newborn mortality rate among pandas is "extremely high".
