The "plump" baby panda!

The little panda was born a month ago in Washington D.C's Smithsonian's National Zoo...

And the zoo has been giving regular updates on the little cub's progress, who has been nursed by its mom Mei Xiang.

And just a month later the little cub, who is yet to be gendered, is doing better than ever...

And it is now so chonky and plump! "For the first time, we had a chance to measure the cub’s abdominal girth as well. It’s back and belly measured 32 centimeters, or 12.5 inches in circumference. Our plump panda cub is almost as round as it is long!" wrote Laurie Thompson, assistant curator of giant pandas, in a press release.

People are delighted about the little panda's progress...
