ATLANTA - It was a happy birthday on Monday for Lun Lun, one of Zoo Atlanta's giant pandas. The mother of 5 turned 17 with a big surprise.

The giant panda was treated to a hand-crafted ice cake featuring frozen bamboo, fruit and other panda goodies by zoo officials.

Lun Lun is the mother of Mei Lun and Mei Huan, the only giant panda twins in the United State. Her offspring also includes Mei Lan, Xi Lan and Po who are at a giant panda research facility in China.

Yang Yang, her male counterpart, also turns 17 this year. His big day is on September 9th.

The pandas were loaned to Zoo Atlanta in 1999 from China.
