ATLANTA-- Zoo Atlanta started the day a circus came to town... and never left. In 1889, a traveling circus headed for Atlanta stalled when it went into bankruptcy. Crowds were drawn to the collection of stranded animals until businessman George Gress bought the animals and donated them to the City of Atlanta.
Now, 120 years later, they relish in the media circus surrounding their newest arrivals. Lun Lun, the giant panda mother, made history Monday when she gave birth to twins. Pictures of the adorable twosome are trickling out.
They are the latest in Zoo Atlanta's baby collection. Check out the photo gallery of Atlanta's cutest zoo animals. Prepare to say "Awww..."
