KUALA LUMPUR:- A giant panda loaned to Malaysia from China has given birth to a second cub during its stay in the Southeast Asian country, zoo officials said Wednesday. The baby was born Sunday to Liang Liang, who has been on loan to Malaysia since 2014 along with a male panda, said Mat Naim Ramli, director of the national zoo’s panda centre outside Kuala Lumpur. He said officials were not yet sure of the cub’s gender as the mother was keeping the youngster so tightly in her grasp zookeepers could not get near. “The mother is very attentive and protective. She doesn’t allow us to (take the cub),” he told AFP.
