According to the zoo, which released the new video on March 16, Xiang Xiang has put “panda dango” into her mouth several times, but she hasn’t been seen swallowing one yet.
She weighed 21.7 kilograms on March 15, an increase of 1.1 kilograms from 10 days earlier. The zoo said Xiang Xiang is growing normally. [Released on March 17, 2018]
