Ueno’s Baby Panda

Last week, Ueno Zoo announced the birth of a baby panda.
It was the first time in over 20 years a panda had been born at the zoo and the first time in its history to be conceived naturally.

The baby was cared for by its handlers as its mother Shin Shin (on loan from a Chinese zoo) was suffering from fatigue.

It has been just confirmed that the baby panda did not make it past its first few days of life and has succumbed to pneumonia.
