1. Meet Le Le (叻叻), Singapore’s First Giant Panda Cub Born

The first giant panda cub born in Singapore is confirmed to be named “Le Le (叻叻)”. The character “Le (叻)” comes from ‘Shi Le Po’ (石叻坡), which was the ancient Chinese name for Singapore. This chosen name was a clear frontrunner from the start and won the public over with close to 50 per cent of the votes.

Starting tomorrow, we can visit Le Le in his new glass-fronted nursery at the Giant Panda Forest. You might catch a glimpse of his daily routine which includes playing with specially created enrichment toys, learning to walk more confidently and catching up on lots of snooze time. Viewing times are scheduled for around 10.30am and 3.30pm daily as these reflect Jia Jia and Le Le’s present routines. Each ‘viewing window’, which ranges between 20-30 minutes, may vary depending on the comfort level of both mother and son, and will be reviewed and adjusted over the next few weeks.
