Taipei, Jan. 10 (CNA) About 100 admirers on early Friday braced the rain and low temperatures to see Yuan Zai, a giant panda cub kept by the Taipei Zoo. On its fifth day of public display, the panda that has created a huge sensation since its birth last July appeared adventurous, climbing up and down its perch. Despite falling down two times from the perch, Yuan Zai remained playful, occasionally sniffing the bamboo shoots inside the enclosure. Its mother, Yuan Yuan, munched on bamboo leaves without paying much attention to the cub. Yuanzai was born after four years of artificial insemination attempts, using sperm from the only other giant panda at the zoo, Tuan Tuan. The pair of giant pandas was given to Taiwan four years ago by China to symbolize warmer ties between the two sides. (By Huang Li-yun and Lee Hsin-Yin)
