Twin Baby Red Pandas Prove 2 Baby Animals Is Always Cuter Than 1

What's better than one impossibly adorable baby red panda? Almost nothing. Except, of course, two impossibly adorable red pandas, like the twin boys born at the Detroit Zoo this summer.

The two cubs, who are still unnamed, were born to mother Ta-Shi and father Shifu on June 27. It's Ta-Shi's fifth time giving birth since she came to the Detroit Zoo in 2008. Red pandas are classified as “vulnerable” on the International Union for Conservation of Nature’s Red List of Threatened Species due to deforestation. They can be found in Nepal, Myanmar and parts of China.

Twins are already special, and clearly, twin baby animals are the sweetest thing on the planet. Just take a look at some of the most darling duos we've come across.

Like these gorilla twins, who love each other:
