TAIPEI, Jan. 5 (Xinhua) -- Yuan Zai, the first cub of a pair of giant pandas given as a goodwill gift to Taiwan by the Chinese mainland, will make her first public appearance on Monday at Taipei Zoo.

During Yuan Zai's media reception on Saturday, she was active for 20 minutes, playing with her mother and climbing trees. She then dozed off.

Six-month-old Yuan Zai is in good condition and accustomed to the environment in the panda hall, according to Taipei mayor Hau Lung-bin.

Although Yuan Zai has not been seen in public, Taiwanese people have seen her online, as the zoo has been streaming her daily life.

Time spent in the panda hall will be limited to 10 minutes per group, and a maximum of 19,200 people will be allowed entry per day.

The cub, born on July 6, is the first baby of "Tuan Tuan" and "Yuan Yuan," who were given as a goodwill gift to Taiwan by the Chinese mainland. The combination of their names means "reunion" in Chinese.
