The giant panda is listed as endangered in the World Conservation Union's Red List of Threatened Species according to the National Zoo; about 1,600 giant pandas are left in the wild.
The zoo opened up voting to the public last month to help it name the young cubs. A naming committee made up of representatives from the Chinese Cultural Centre of Greater Toronto and the Toronto Zoo compiled a list of seven name combinations to vote on.
"Giant pandas are considered a national treasure in China, and I am confident everyone will embrace Canada's first giant panda cubs," Ming-Tat Cheung, president of the Chinese Cultural Centre, said in a news release.
The giant panda cubs have been in a special maternity area since their birth and will make their debut to the public on March 12.Scroll down to see the video and the gallery of the cuteest giants-to-be: Jia Panpan and Jia Yueyue...
