The baby panda (that we had a great time trying to name) has made its debut earlier this week on Tuesday, at Zoo Negara. The cub is daughter to China's giant pandas Liang Liang and Xing Xing, which were loaned to Malaysia to celebrate 40 years of diplomatic relations between the countries. She is also the first panda to be born naturally in captivity, outside of China.

According to The Star, she weighed about 175 grams at her birth and is now three months old. In a footage recently released by CCTV News China, the cub is as fluffy as you'd imagine. She also couldn't be bothered about the attention she was getting as she dozed off mid photo shoot. How adorable!

 

Watch: Baby panda "Jingjing" makes debut in MalaysiaJingjing, the three-month-old daughter of China's giant panda Liangliang, made her first public appearance in Malaysia on Tuesday, attracting hundreds of visitors. The National Zoo of Malaysia says Jingjing was only about 170 grams during birth. China rented out two giant pandas, including Liangliang, to Malaysia as part of the celebration to mark 40 years of diplomatic relations between the two countries.

If you wish to see the cutie, she will be available for viewing at Zoo Negara between 2.30pm and 3.30pm daily. You can also submit name ideas for the cub as the contest runs until 17 December 2015. 

Actor Liam Hemsworth also proved to be a huge panda fan when he carried Jennifer Lawrence's purse in a panda hat and also appeared in a panda onesie during an appearance on Live With Kelly and Michael.
