On 14 Aug, pandas Jia Jia and Kai Kai welcomed a new addition to their family at Singapore’s River Safari.

Since then, the baby’s mother, Jia Jia, and the zookeepers have been taking good care of him.

Though the cub is still not ready to be placed in his enclosure for public viewing, Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) has been providing regular updates on him.

At birth, the hairless baby panda was no bigger than Jia Jia’s paw and was unable to open his eyes.


As time passed, the panda cub started to hit several milestones.

When he was 8-days old, some white fur could be seen.



In no time at all, some black markings which are distinctive to Giant Pandas started to show.


A month after the cub was born, WRS finally revealed that the panda was a boy.

The most recent update from WRS was that the panda cub had opened his eyes to the world after 40 days.

WRS also mentioned that he weighed nearly 2kg as of 24 Sep.

Today (1 Oct), Mr Tan Chuan-Jin shared an even newer photo of the panda cub, which apparently weighs over 2.6kg now.


Seeing just how big the baby looks now, many netizens commented on how fast the panda has grown.


Most of the comments also mentioned that the cub looked huggable.
