UPDATE! Giant Panda Mother and Cub Reunite at Taipei Zoo
Taipei Zoo’s Giant Panda cub is growing up healthy and strong. At one month old, she now weighs in at 2.5 pounds (1,140 grams), more than six times her weight at birth. The cub was hand-raised due to concerns that the mother, Yuan Yuan, would not be able to provide the best care for her baby. (See our original story about the birth here.) The cub has been named Yuan Tsai, and although she will not appear before the public for another three months, many families flocked to Taipei Zoo’s recent baby shower in celebration of the first panda born in Taiwan.
