SAINT-AIGNAN Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Basse Homme Rouge Noir Pas Cher , France, Aug. 5 (Xinhua) -- Huan Huan, the female panda on loan to France from China, has delivered twin cubs on Friday night, but one cub died shortly after its birth Homme Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Basse Bleu Pas Cher , according to the French zoo.
In her first delivery, Huan Huan "was very calm" and has given birth to two cubs at an interval of a few minutes, the zoo said. The first panda cub was born at 10:18 p.m. local time (2018 GMT), and the other came 14 minutes later.
In the wild, female pandas raise only one cub Nike Air Force 1 Flyknit Basse Blanche Grise Pas Cher , the "strongest", the one that has the most chances of survival, and abandon the second. Huan Huan took care of the first cub immediately after its birth, but chose the second cub and abandoned the first after the second cub was born.
The first cub was put immediately to the incubator but was announced dead shortly.

JOHANNESBURG - Knocked off his board by an attacking shark, three-time world champion Mick Fanning punched the creature before escaping unharmed during the televised finals of a world surfing competition in South Africa on Sunday.
The Australian surfer was struck by the shark from behind and knocked into the water as he sat on his board waiting his turn during the JBay Open in Jeffrey's Bay in the Eastern Cape Province.
As he scans the water, two fins appear and with a splash he disappears under the surface. He is next seen furiously trying to swim to safety before a rescuer pulls him out of the water.
"A big sigh of relief seeing Fanning in one piece Nike Air Force 1 HI Supreme Le Noir Or Pas Cher ," a commentator is heard saying, on the video of the event posted on the World Surf League website.
"I felt something grab, get stuck in my leg rope and instantly jump away. And it just kept coming at my board," Fanning said, once safe on the rescue boat.
Fanning said at first he swam away but then decided to defend himself and turned to punch the shark in the back.
"I saw it taking my board away and I just started cracking it Femme Nike Air Force 1 Haute X girl Rouge Pas Cher ," he told a crowd that gathered around him once he was back on shore, referring to how he struck the shark.
"I'm totally fine. I've got nothing wrong with me," Fanning said in an interview. "There's a small depression in my board and my leg wrap (was) bitten. I'm just totally tripping out. To walk away from that, I'm just so stoked. Oh man."
Fanning's mother, Elizabeth Osborne Homme Nike Air Force 1 Haute Supreme SP Rouge Blanche Pas Cher , who watched the incident live on television in Australia, wept as she told Australian Broadcasting Corp. radio the attack was "the worst thing I've ever seen happen to any of my family because it was just there in front of me."
Osborne said she believes Fanning's brother Sean, who died in a car accident 17 years ago, was watching over his sibling.
The World Surf League cancelled the remainder of the event and Fanning will split the prize money with fellow Australian surfer Julian Wilson, who was also in the water when the attack happened. The two will share second place.
"We are incredibly grateful that no one was seriously injured today Homme Nike Air Force 1 Haute Supreme SP Blanche Noir Pas Cher ," the league said in a statement. "Mick's composure and quick acting in the face of a terrifying situation was nothing short of heroic."
Commentator Ross Williams said there are occasionally shark sightings in and around events but an actual attack was very unusual.
"For it to happen in that fashion during the finals, where it actually showed that crazy aggression toward Mick Fanning, such a crazy thing," he said on the video.
Phil Neville denied he is sexist and said he has huge respect for women, in his first media appearance after being appointed England women's head coach.
Neville apologised a day after taking the job for past tweets about women.
"I had to - I didn't like the words used Nike Air Force 1 Haute Supreme SP Noir Blanche Homme Pas Cher ," said the 41-year-old. "I'm not a sexist. I've lived my life right."
The appointment has been criticised because of Neville's lack of coaching and women's football experience but he denied the job was a "stepping stone".
"I'm England manager. Any job after this will be a step down," Neville told BBC sports editor Dan Roan.
The former England defender has only ever managed one game - at Salford City, a team he co-owns - but has coached former club Manchester United, England Under-21s and Spanish side Valencia.
"I'm qualified for the job, I have a [coaching] Pro Licence. It's to work in all aspects of football.
"I've worked at elite level. I've worked abroad. Some of the players are world class. I'm best qualified for this job.
"I didn't get it by default. I didn't just get handed the keys to women's football. This is not something that has been plucked from the top of a tree.
"I had to undergo stringent tests and presentations Nike Lunar Force 1 Basse Homme Blanche Ice Bleu Pas Cher , six and seven-hour interviews with the Football Association, psychometric profiling - it was a long process. But ultimately I'm the best man for the job and shouldn't be embarrassed about that."
The Football Association said last week that Neville would not be charged over his controversial tweets.
In one tweet, he suggested women would be too "busy making breakfastgetting kids ready" to read his messages, while other users picked up on comments he had made when interacting with his sister and with his wife - and on.
