Adorable Panda Cub That Can’t Sleep Annoys Sleepy Mum Instead

This is the astonishing moment adorable baby panda Katyusha got bored at night when she couldn’t sleep, and came to annoy her sleepy mum at Moscow Zoo in Russia.

The images were obtained from the General Director of the Moscow Zoo Svetlana Akulova with a statement saying: “Sometimes Katyusha gets bored at night.

“And at these moments, she follows her mother and wakes her up with not-so-tender kisses.”

Katyusha made history as the first baby giant panda to be born in Russia, according to the Chinese National Giant Panda Conservation and Research Centre.

She was born in August 2023 and was named in a social media poll after 380,000 social media users chose her name. The footage was shot in June this year (2024).

Dindin and her partner Ruyi arrived in Moscow in 2019 as part of China’s and Russia’s celebration of the 70th anniversary of diplomatic ties between the two countries.

Chinese media said that the panda family are set to spend 15 years at Moscow Zoo before returning home.

China is famous for its ‘Panda Diplomacy’, where giant pandas are sent from China to other countries as a tool of diplomacy.
