Zoologists say it’s delightfully different the way Mei Xiang is keeping her baby warm. Most of the time new panda moms will just keep the cub up under their armpit. But Mei Xiang is cradling her newborn in her forearms while staring longingly into its tiny eyes.
I’m not crying… you’re crying!!
OMG, don’t you just love animals with every fiber of your being?
