The four-month-old cub made her debut on a small platform set inside a room, in front of media cameras outside a glass window.
Her black-and-white fur is fully grown with the typical black eyes.

The female giant panda now weighs 9 kg and is in good health, said Zoo officials.
She will be meeting the public daily inside the room before joining her parents in the open display area in two to three months’ time.
Bai Tian, Chinese ambassador to Malaysia, said he expects the baby giant panda to be another envoy to promote friendship between China and Malaysia. He also suggested to hold a online campaign to name the cub.
The baby panda, born in January, is the second offspring of her parents Xing Xing and Liang Liang who arrived in Malaysia in 2014. Their first-born, Nuan Nuan, who is also a female, returned to China in November last year after turning two-year-old.
