Kai Kai and Jia Jia’s baby opened his eyes for the first time at 5 weeks’ old.
The firstborn of Singapore’s giant panda residents, Kai Kai and Jia Jia, has reached another milestone – opening his eyes to the world 40 days after he was born on Sep 22.
Panda cubs are more helpless than other mammal infants as they typically open their eyes at six to eight weeks after being born and do not move around until about three months.
The baby panda also continues to grow healthily as he gained close to 370g and is now 1870g.
Previously, members of the public were encouraged to submit suggested names for the panda cub on Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS)’s website. A panel of judges are now collating the submissions, before releasing the shortlisted names for voting.
Singapore-born panda cub now measures at 51.5cm and weighs 3kg
