    UNDATED (CNN) -- A giant panda cub with the name "Yuan Zai" recently enjoyed her maiden sunbath at the Taipei Zoo in Taipei, southeast China's Taiwan region.

    After health examination, the little fatty "Yuan Zai" almost six kilograms in weight started her maiden sunbath in a basket. It was her first time to see the nature, she was so curious about everything surrounded and crawled in her tiny basket.

    The cub is 95-day old, and in order to help the growth of her bones, breeders arranged the sunbath for her.

    The female cub, born on July 6, is the first baby of giant pandas "Tuan Tuan" and "Yuan Yuan", which were presented as goodwill gifts to the Taiwan region by the Chinese mainland.

    China now has more than 1,590 giant pandas in the wild and over 310 in captivity, and some 40 ones in other countries and regions, according to Chinese zoologists.

    The emblem of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) based in Switzerland, is the giant panda, China's state treasure.
