A baby girl giant panda, born on August 14, is delighting spectators at Adventure World in Shirahama, Wakayama Prefecture, Japan, since September 13 and now the theme park is publicly seeking suggestions for her name.



 The baby, the smallest of all giant panda cubs born at Adventure World, was not able to drink from her mother’s teat when she was born so the staff fed the baby in an incubator with breast milk pumped from her mother Rauhin while controlling the temperature and humidity to prevent the baby's body temperature from falling. The baby was returned to her Rauhin regularly from the incubator as part of efforts to encourage the baby to drink from her mother’s teat on her own. Two days after her birth, the baby finally started to feed under her own power. However, because her body temperature would drop during the nursing time, the baby panda had to be put back in the temperature-controlled incubator immediately after breast-feeding. As the baby panda’s weight and body heat increased in tandem with her growth, her body temperature began to stablise. Now her black-and-white body pattern is appearing clearly, and her eyes are expected to open soon. 

Here are some key points to help you come up with a name. 

1. The baby panda is the 16th giant panda born at the theme park.

2. The baby (75 grams at birth) is the smallest of all giant pandas born at the park in the past, but she is growing steadily.

3. Her father (Eimei: 26 years old) broke his own world record for being the oldest male panda to have succeeded in natural mating and breeding in captivity.

Suggestions for the baby’s name can be uploaded in both English and Chinese at https://contact-aws.com/en/ and
