Image of Asia: A healthy trio of panda cubs

In this photo by Kin Cheung, panda triplets are examined at their 1-month medical checkup at the Chimelong Safari Park in Guangzhou, China. The official Xinhua News Agency says the girl and two boys are healthy and have grown to about a kilogram in weight since their birth July 29. The cubs were only the fourth triplets known to have been born in artificial breeding programs, but it wasn't clear how many survived previously. China devotes major resources to increasing the population of its unofficial mascot and regularly announces the births of giant pandas at zoos and at the Wolong breeding center in the southwestern province of Sichuan, where most wild pandas live. ___ AP photographers on Twitter: http://apne.ws/1ox8vgG
