Baby and mother panda reunite

Published

Quick warning: you're going to want the tissues at the ready when you watch this sweet video of a baby and mother panda being reunited.

The pair had been separated by zookeepers in Taipei, after the cub was slightly injured by its mother after birth, so it had to be raised in an incubator for round-the-clock monitoring.

The full reunion came a day after mother and cub were introduced to one another, while a cage separated them, so zoo staff could monitor their reaction.

Following a series of artificial insemination sessions, as the cub's parents failed to conceive naturally, she was born on July 7th.

Currently, the infant resides at Taipei City Zoo and there is a campaign underway for the public to name her. The final result is expected to be announced on October 26th.
