The baby panda was given a weigh-in while his mom Jia Jia was eating breakfast in her maternity ward.
The panda care team at Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) had the chance to weigh the one-month old panda cub for the first time while his mom Jia Jia had her breakfast in the maternity ward.
The cub grew from an estimated 200g at birth to a healthy 1504g at 33 days old.
This is “testament to the wonderful maternal skills of supermom Jia Jia”, said WRS in a media release on Wednesday (Sep 15).
Community engagements are on-going for the public to name the cub before its 100-day milestone on Nov 21, in accordance with Chinese traditions.
WRS also set guidelines for the name, such as having positive meanings and attributes, as well as being catchy and easy to remember.
It should also honour Singapore’s heritage and culture, and be of significance to the friendship between Singapore and China.
A judging panel headed by Mr Tan Chuan-Jin, Speaker of Parliament and deputy chairman of Mandai Park Holdings, will be overseeing the process.
Submissions for names will close at 11.59 pm on Sep 19, and shortlisted names will be up for public voting. Submit a name for the baby panda here!
