Qinling Panda Series Ep. 8: What is life in a baby panda's cave like?

In November, autumn prevails in the Qinling Mountains. Beneath a sunny cliff, a warm scene is recorded. The cub sleeps soundly in a cave and it is time for the mother to go out eating. Without its mother by the side, the cub spends most of the day sleeping. Over two months old, it has black patterns on its body like a miniature of its mother. A panda cub's cave life usually lasts about 120 days. Will the memory of the short infancy at home linger in its mind?
