Cute Overload Peeps, please give a warm welcome to Newby Panda Tuan Tuan!
Get a LOAD OF THIS FUZZ!!! (Sorry- get excitable talkin’ about pandas.)
Tuan Tuan was born at the Taipei Zoo July 6th to nine-year-old Giant Panda Yuan Yuan.
Mail Online says “The panda was born at the Taipei Zoo after three years filled with seven failed pregnancies for the mother. Natural pregnancy among pandas is relatively rare.”
Visitors to the Taipei Zoo won’t get to see Tuan Tuan for another couple of months.
Mom Yuan Yuan was a gift to Taiwan from China.
Tuan Tuan’s weight has already doubled!
Tuan Tuan + Yuan Yuan together mean “reunion.”
Tuan Tuan gets to stay in Taiwan- usually any cubs born abroad from a Chinese-loaned Panda are returned to China.
