Saint-Aignan, France (BBN) – Because we know you’re probably dreading heading back to work (or school, or college) on Monday, here’s something to brighten your Sunday.
Mini Yuan Zi, a fluffy baby panda born this summer at a zoo in France, just took his first steps. And luckily for all of us, it was all captured on camera, reports NDTV.
If you’re looking to load up on some Monday motivation, watching the determined little guy put one paw in front of the other and take his first steps might just help.
Mini Yuan Zi (sometimes spelt Mini Yuan Zai) was born on August 4 at Beauval zoo in central France. He’s the first giant panda to be born in France.
The three-month-old panda is named after his father, Yuan Zi. As per Chinese tradition, pandas receive their official name 100 days after their birth.
Both Yuan Zi and his partner Huan Huan are on loan from China. The nine-year-old pandas are the only giant pandas living in France, and they arrived in Beauval in 2012 after intense, high-level negotiations between Paris and Beijing.
And finally, here’s a fun fact: France’s First Lady Brigitte Macron is the baby panda’s godmother.
