Yi Yi says hello

Yi Yi, a 19-month-old female panda cub on loan from China, eats during her naming ceremony at the National Zoo in Kuala Lumpur on Thursday. Zoos around the world have contracts with China to house pandas for a few years partly in an effort to help the endangered species to reproduce before being returned to their native land.
