Panda cub reunited with mom
Little one dubbed Rice Meatball spent a month away from its mother.
A baby panda that was born July 6 at the Taipei Zoo has been slowly reintroduced to her mom after spending a month in an incubator. The baby panda squealed as she finally was back in Yuan Yuan’s arms on Monday.
Temporarily nicknamed “Rice Meatball,” the tiny cub is the result of seven rounds of artificial insemination for mom Yuan Yuan and dad Tuan Tuan, reported the Huffington Post U.K.
The cub, which won’t meet the public for several more months, has spent much of her time in an incubator and is being hand raised.
