[Movie] Panda cub’s first meal looming

The Yomiuri Shimbun Female giant panda cub Xiang Xiang is showing more interest in the food her mother eats, as seen in this footage released by Tokyo’s Ueno Zoo on Feb. 16. Now more than 8 months old, Xiang Xiang accompanies her mother, Shin Shin, during meals, which include bamboo, bamboo grass and apples. Xiang Xiang has put some of these foods in her mouth and chewed them, but the zoo has not yet confirmed that she has actually eaten them. According to the zoo, Xiang Xiang still drinks milk from her mother but is expected to start being weaned when she is about 9 months old. [Released on February 17, 2018]
