A presentation ceremony was held for the new female cub who was born on June 12.

Xiang Xiang, meaning ”fragrance or popular” in Chinese, is the fifth cub to be born in the Zoo and will be shown to the public starting December 19.

Real life sized dolls are sold, too.
Approximately 1,400 visitors came to see the cub on the day of her public debut.
