The cub, which was pinkish-white at beginning, is beginning to look extra like a panda, with giant patches of black-and-white fur. Its eyes have been closed, as they’ve been since beginning, however one eye was beginning to open. Steeil listened to its coronary heart and lungs, felt its abdomen, and checked its arm and leg actions. He pronounced the cub to be in good well being.
Mei Xiang was quickly reunited with the cub, which made a number of loud squeals through the examination. The pair are anticipated to stay off public view for a few months. The cub’s siblings — Tai Shan, Bao Bao and Bei Bei — met the general public after they have been four or 5 months outdated.
