ADORABLE VIDEO: Panda cub tries to turn herself over

Still frame from video provided by APTN and NBC News

Check out this video of a baby panda that has gone viral on Chinese social media platforms.

The China Conservation and Research Center for the Giant Panda released this clip showing a 5-week-old female panda. The panda is lying on its back and crunching repeatedly in an attempt to turn itself over.

The research center said that the panda cub does not have a name yet, but many at the base call her “Xidou’s baby” in reference to her mother, whose name translates as “little bean.”

The panda cub is the bigger of the twins that Xidou gave birth to last month. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
