Posing for their first day at their new nursery, these 16 panda cubs are clearly going to be a handful.In these amazing images, the tiny pandas are shown their new home for the first time after being separated from their mothers.The curious cubs were soon exploring their assault course home complete with umbrellas and ballons to welcome them on their first day.It was the first taste of independence for the youngsters at the Wolong National Nature Reserve, in Sichuan Province, south west China.

Keepers at the reserve posed for a class photograph with their wide-eyed pupils and were helping the babies adjust to their new life under the gaze of visitors at the reserve.Around 1,600 giant pandas live in the wild in China, mostly in Sichuan and the north western provinces of Shaanxi and Gansu.Another 290 pandas are in breeding programmes in the country.
