ATLANTA – Three young male pandas at Zoo Atlanta are actually females.

Genetic testing revealed the surprise about the twin cubs Mei Lun and Mei Huan, who were born in July.

The twins were tested after an exam showed a three-year-old panda at the zoo, named Po, is also female.

Gender mistakes are not uncommon in giant pandas.
