TAIPEI, July 7 (Xinhua) -- The first cub born to a pair of pandas presented to Taiwan by the Chinese mainland is female, the Taipei Zoo announced on Sunday.

The sex of the newborn cub could not be immediately identified, because its mother, Yuan Yuan, kept it around her after giving birth at 8:05 p.m. (Beijing Time) on Saturday.

Its birth weigh accounted for only about one-thousandth of that of its nine-year-old mother, the zoo said.
