One Month Old Panda Cub Waves Hello

An un-bearably cute one month old Giant Panda cub appears to wave hello in this adorable photo taken earlier this year at the China Conservation and Research Centre for the Giant Panda in Sichuan, China. The photograph was taken by Dr Katherine Feng, who also captured the rest of the photos in the gorgeous set below.

Interestingly, when panda cubs are born they are only about the size of a stick of butter. That paired with their pink skin and short white prickly fur, makes them not look much like a panda at all. By the time they are about one month old, however, they have all their spots, and when they are two months old they are the size of an average human newborn baby.
