Crowds of people spent the first day of spring break at the Toronto Zoo, checking out the new star attractions.
Giant panda cubs Jia Panpan and Jia Yueyue, Canada's furriest celebrities, made their public debut on Saturday, and they did not disappoint. People lined up to see the cubs frolic and play.
“Oh my gosh, I'm in love,” said one zoo visitor. “They are so adorable.”
Said a young boy: “They are so cute, although they were sleeping.”
The Canadian-born panda cubs are now viewable to the public on a daily basis.
The cubs were born last October to Er Shun, a female panda on loan from China to Canada.
It's been a big week for the cubs. On Monday, the zoo revealed their names in a high-profile ceremony attended by several dignitaries, including Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.
The cubs' names translate into Canadian Hope and Canadian Joy.
