ATLANTA (AP) — Two giant pandas born in the U.S. have arrived safely at their new home in China.

Zoo Atlanta officials say 5-year-old Xi Lan and 3-year-old Po arrived Thursday at the Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding. They will be placed in routine quarantine for a short period before moving into their new habitats.

The two young pandas left Atlanta on Monday.
