Mommy, Hao Hao immediately took her tiny and hairless squealing son in her jaws to protect it and clean it. The cub, which is hairless, blind and weighs just 171g (6oz), is yet to be named.

“It’s a boy!” the director of the Pairi Daiza wildlife park, Eric Domb, told a news conference at the zoo in southern Belgium.

“Everything went exceptionally well,” he added.

There are fewer than 2,000 giant pandas left in the wild, and he is only the third panda cub to be born in Europe in the last 20 years, the other two being in Austria and Spain.
