Five-month-old Yuan Meng, the first giant panda cub born in France, made its public debut yesterday at the Beauval Zoo in Saint-Aignan, central France.
The male baby panda, born on Aug. 4, appeared alongside its mother Huan Huan behind a glass wall in their lavish home adorned with Chinese lanterns and rockeries, amid cheers.
The name “Yuan Meng”, meaning “the realization of a dream” in Chinese, was given to the baby panda in December at a ceremony attended by its “Godmother”, France’s First Lady Brigitte Macron.
A large group of fans were attracted to the zoo to get a first glimpse of the panda cub. Hundreds of people were seen lined up at the entrance around 9:00, an hour before the zoo opened.
