Child panda makes first public look in France

The primary ever child panda born in France has melted the hearts of onlookers in his first public look at a zoo south of Paris.

Yuan Meng, whose identify means “the realisation of a want” or “accomplishment of a dream”, was named in a ceremony in December.

Female panda gave birth to twins on August 4, 2017, but one died soon afterwards.
