Cutest & Happiest Panda Cub Is Born (Photos & Video)

Okay, so the little velvet bean of a panda cub may not really be smiling. But, since our human propensity is to anthropomorphize, she looks like she is smiling to me — and probably to you — and consequently, just looking at these photos made me smile big and wide. And I do know my smile is real and likely so will be yours. So enjoy these photos from the Taipei Zoo of what looks like a newborn panda grinning a big Buddha-like smile, giggling and  just enjoying the miracle of being alive!

This video shows Yuan Yuan giving birth to the happy little cub on June 6th. The video is slow going — as is birth — but suddenly out pops the panda cub squealing like a little piglet!
