Twin baby pandas are born at a safari park in Guangzhou, South China's Guangdong province, on Oct 9, 2016.

Giant panda Meiqing, who moved from Wolong, Sichuan province, in 2012 to a safari park in Guangzhou, the capital of Guangdong province, has given birth to twin male cubs, according to the Giant Panda Protection and Research Center of China.

The twin cubs are in healthy condition, weighing more than 4 kilograms each, according to Li Zhong, vice director of the Giant Panda Protection and Research Center of China.

Prior to giving birth to the twin cubs on Oct 9, the 14-year-old Meiqing had already given birth to a male and female giant panda in 2010 and 2013 respectively, according to Li.

"Moving out of their home base is of great importance in the protection of giant pandas," said Li.

The Guangzhou Chimelong Safari Park, in cooperation with the Giant Panda Protection and Research Center of China, has so far helped nurture seven giant pandas in the last four years.

Early in 2014, giant panda Juxiao gave birth to triplet giant pandas in the safari park, a rare development in the protection of giant pandas, according to Li.

The twin boy panda cubs are in good health.
