Video: First 100 days of Zoo Atlanta pandas

ATLANTA (CBS46) -

It's been 100 days since the Zoo Atlanta twin cubs were born.

Born July 15, 2013, Mei Lun and Mei Huan are the first surviving pair of giant panda twins ever born in the U.S. and are the fourth and fifth offspring of Lun Lun and Yang Yang.

In keeping with the Chinese tradition, the winning names were revealed during the cubs' 100 Day Naming Celebration on Oct. 23.

The names come from ancient Chinese idioms which mean 'something indescribably beautiful and magnificent.'

Check out this time lapse video of the cubs' first 100 days.
