On approach, you can hear Chimelong Safari Park before you can see it - not the roaring lions or the chatter of monkeys, but the audible excitement of the countless children visiting the zoo.

There are over 500 rare animals within this 2000 acre park, but there's no hiding the fact that the pandas are its main attraction.

The lion may be the king of the jungle, but in this part of the world, there's another creature that sits atop the hierarchy - in terms of popularity at least.

Chimelong Safari Park features a set of panda triplets, one female and two male.

They're adorable, handsome and cool, even by name - Meng Meng (Adorable), Shuai Shuai (Handsome) and Ku Ku (Cool).

They're also very special, as just the fourth set of triplet pandas ever recorded, and the first where all three cubs survived.
