There is ultimately not one but two embryos in Huan Huan's womb.
The female panda from Beauval Zoo in Saint-Aignan (Loir-et-Cher) is expecting twins.
The births are scheduled in a good week.
An ultrasound carried out this Friday at 4 p.m. by the veterinary services of the animal park detected the second embryo in one of the two horns of the uterus.
On Tuesday, these experts had only been able to detect one.
Twinning is common in pandas, usually one in two births.
During her first pregnancy in 2017, Huan Huan was already expecting twins.
But one of the cubs died within a few minutes of giving birth.
Only Yuan Meng had survived.
