France's first baby Giant panda Yuan Meng (Dream come true) is now 10 months old and exploring the great outdoors. He is a playful and adventurous cub, but still needs milk from his mother Huan Huan twice a day. He sleeps in his own special den, apart from his mother, and is reunited with her each morning by the keepers at Beauval Zoo. Contact timharris@naturepl.com for the full text of this story. As well as the most recent images of Yuan Meng, this gallery shows the circumstances of the baby panda's birth and updates on his progress at 1, 2, 3 and 8 months of age. He was christened on 4th December 2017 by the First Lady of France Brigitte Macron, using a name chosen by the First Lady of China.
