Meet Fu Bao!
The panda cub at Zoo Vienna (Tiergarten Schönbrunn) has now been given a name. The male cub born on August 14, 2013 will be called Fu Bao. After Fu Long, the happy dragon, and Fu Hu, the happy tiger, the third cub in Austria will be the happy leopard.
"Along with the dragon and the tiger, the leopard in China is another very brave and strong animal. Bào is a very popular boy’s name, as it is supposed to give its bearer the strength of a leopard", explains the zoo’s director Dagmar Schratter about the meaning of the name, which the keepers have chosen for the little one.
Fu Bao is definitely a strong little chap, even now as he already weighs over six kilograms. This coming Sunday, Fu Bao’s name-giving will be celebrated.
