New photos and video of the baby giant panda born at Tokyo's Ueno Zoological Gardens were released on Aug. 14.

The baby turned 60 days old on Aug. 11, and underwent her latest physical examination. Her body weight had increased from 2,341.2 grams, taken in the previous measurement on Aug. 1, to 3,010 grams, and her body length stretched from 40.6 centimeters to 43.9 centimeters.

From around Aug. 7, the panda cub began to move around using her hind legs, reach out with her front legs and roll her body over. Her mother Shin Shin continues to eat well while keeping a careful watch over her cub by licking and breastfeeding her.
