On Monday, a giant panda born in a Malaysian Zoo last year January 14, celebrating her first birthday with a cake made of ice in front of adoring visitors.
The cute little panda looked around shy as a zookeeper carried her to a platform in her enclosure where the ice cake that has a large number “one” on the top, was eagerly waiting.
After nibbling at some carrots used to decorate the creation, the little Panda has not yet been named- seemed to tire of the celebration and feels asleep now.
The one-years-old Panda weighted 34 kilos, and she is the second cub born to Liang Liang and Xing Xing since they were sent to Malaysia in 2014 from China, on a 10-year loan.
In August 2015, the first Nuan Nuan was born and was sent back to China in 2017. Beijing and Kuala Lumpur have agreed that the cubs born in captivity must go back to China at the age of 2-years.
The little Pandas are kept at the National Zoo’s Panda centre outside Kuala Lumpur.
It is evaluated that there are over 1800 giant Pandas left in the wild, lives in the bamboo forest in the mountains of Western China, reports the environmental group WWF.
