Thousands of people turned up to the birthday party for an usual person; Taiwan’s first Giant Panda cub.

The cub, Yuan Zai, turned one year old on the 6 of July and has been the star attraction of the zoo since she had her public debut in January.

Yuan Zai is a healthy cub who was conceived due to artificial insemination.

She celebrated her birthday with a ‘cake’ made out of apples, pinnaples, and buns which was specially made of the day. The cub also played the traditional game for 1-year-olds in Taiwan; ‘Zhua Zhou”. The game involves different hanging cards and the first card grabbed indicates a future career path or interest.

Yuan Zai picked the card for painter along with others.
