Baby Panda Celebrates First Birthday with Cake in Kuala Lumpur Zoo

KUALA LUMPUR – A giant panda cub celebrated its first birthday with a special cake at the National Zoo in Kuala Lumpur on Monday.

The unnamed female is the second cub of Liang Liang, which is on a 10-year loan from China along with the cub’s father Xing Xing.

The 2014 loan marked the 40th anniversary of diplomatic ties between Malaysia and China since they were initiated by Malaysia’s second prime minister, the late Abdul Razak Hussein in 1974.

There are 1,864 pandas in the wild, according to the World Wildlife Fund (WWF), most of which inhabit bamboo forests in China’s Yangtze Basin region.

The species is considered vulnerable and is increasingly threatened by the forest fragmentation brought about by railroads and roads.

“A newborn panda is about the size of a stick of butter but can grow up to 330 pounds as an adult,” according to WWF.
