NATURAL ROUGH CUT (NO REPORTER NARRATION) Panda cubs Fu Feng and Fu Ban were allowed to explore their pen's outside area for the first time since their birth in Vienna's Schoenbrunn Zoo. In a statement, the zoo said the twins accompanied their mother, Yang Yang, into the exterior section of their enclosure on Monday (February 27). The nearly seven-month-old twins are said to be skilled at climbing and took full advantage of the tree trunk climbing frame. The zoo said the cubs appeared to be curious about their new surroundings and didn't hesitate to wander around, even when their mother was resting on the ground. After three hours of play, the zookeepers collected the animals and returned them to their indoor home.
