Giant panda mum breastfeeds cub in the wild

A sweet and tender moment was captured on camera when a giant panda mother was spotted
breastfeeding her cub in a forest in China.

It is reportedly the first time such a scene has been filmed in the wild.

The panda mum and her cub, thought to be between one and two-years-old, were first spotted resting in a high tree in Foping County in Shaanxi Province.

Junior then let mum know that it was meal time and she duly climbed down and suckled the cub on a small slope.

The adorable scene was said to have been captured by local TV journalists.

Researchers say that wild giant panda mothers usually keep on breastfeeding until their cubs reach around two-years-old.
