The world's only surviving giant panda triplets were doing well as they turned 100 days old on Wednesday.
Each weighs more than 5 kilograms (11 lbs.), up from just over 100 grams (3½ oz.) at birth. They started teething at around 80 days old and have two small teeth each.
The cubs were born on July 29 within four hours, the female cub first and then her brothers.

Forget playdates. For a mother bear and her cub, Pasadena, California, became a playground on Thursday.
News helicopters captured their city adventure, which began when the two California black bears were spotted hanging near a dumpster in a busy business district. The mother stood on a ledge as her baby struggled to get out of the receptacle.
"They bring their cubs to an area where there's a decent amount of food, decent amount of water, and there's no threat," California Department of Fish and Wildlife game warden J.C. Healy explained to NBC Los Angeles.

This tiger cub is only 25 days old, but the squirmy cutie has already figured out how to work the camera.
The unnamed newborn joined in on an adorable photo shoot in Hangzhou, China, according to Pix 11. During the session, the cub tried to strike some ferocious poses, but turned out looking more darling than dangerous. The rare black tiger was also joined by a dog, who allowed the wild animal to nurse from her when needed.

We've said it before and we'll say it again: We love our jobs.
But in order to keep them, we have to bring you things like this video of adorable puppies playing with toys in the PEOPLE studio.
The only reason we're still employed is because there is actually a reason for all this cuteness: Animal Planet's Emmy-nominated series, Too Cute, has somehow managed to get even cuter in its second season, with Too Cute! Pint-Sized, a 12-episode, half-hour series that begins Aug. 16 at 8 p.m. ET/PT (two back-to-back episodes air each week).

If there's one thing you remember from today, it should be this: there is nothing cuter than a set of panda triplets.
There is also nothing more rare. Born on July 29 at Guangzhou's Chimelong Safari Park in China, these 16-day-old siblings are the world's first surviving panda triplets, according to The Guardian.
The birth of the panda babies – who are being cared for by their mother Juxiao and a round-the-clock team of zoo nannies – is extra-special since the animals have such a low reproductive rate.
