    ATLANTA - America’s only twin giant pandas turned 1 Tuesday. According to Zoo Atlanta officials, fans from near and far were invited to watch and celebrate the panda’s at two special events Saturday and Tuesday.
     
    Mei Lun and Mei Huan were the first giant pandas born in the U.S in 2013 and are the only pair of surviving giant panda twins ever born in the U.S.
