Yay, I’m many a Cuteporter! Baby Panda waves his hands in the air with glee at all the attenshuns.
They are adorable! Thank you for putting them on CuteOverload!
Awwwwwwwwwww!!!! Mama’s tenderness in handling her baby is too, too sweet. I love the way Mama Panda goes to sleep after feeding Baby Panda. Usually it’s the other way around!
Why is he not with his mummy all the time? She is so sweet with him, my teeth are aching.
Cautionary… they wanted to let him get a little bigger and stronger because the baby pandas are prone to infectious disease and smothering by mama. There are so few that they aren’t taking any chances.
Adorable little noise makers! :D
OMG Panda hugs and naps and… Little tiny panda and big mama panda and… *hyperventilates, collapses*

Mama knows just what to do with her cub. Beautiful.
What an emotional roller coaster!! Heart melted with cute, then gasping with horror when mama picks up baby by the HEAD! Then total heart melt down when I realize how gentle she is and the snuggling!!! Oh the snuggling!! Too much!!
Panda cubs are normally with their moms right from birth. But this one hurt its leg a few days after birth and the keepers were afraid it would get infected from mom licking it. Pandas are so rare they cannot risk even one so they removed it from mom and put it in an incubator. Once the wound on its leg healed, they moved toward reuniting baby with mom.
Judging by those last three photos, I think the kid has a future in Shakespearian theater.
Me too! I was very concerned until she pulled him SO gently into her arms to cradle him in a soft hug! I actually got just a little lump in my throat. Too much, is right!!
