12-day-old giant panda cub in Malaysia doubles birth weight

Giant Panda Liang Liang's third cub, born 12 days ago in Malaysia, has already more than doubled its birth weight and is "very healthy," according to a veterinarian at the country's National Zoo.

Liang Liang gave birth to the male cub at the Giant Panda Conservation Center at Zoo Negara Malaysia near Kuala Lumpur on May 31, the same day China and Malaysia marked the 47th anniversary of diplomatic relations.
