A female giant panda cub born last month at Ueno Zoo in Tokyo is growing well and can now crawl, as well as move its head from side to side, zoo officials said Sunday.

Although it is not on public view yet, the cub has drawn a lot of attention since its birth on June 12. It is the first panda cub born at Ueno Zoological Gardens since 2012. The zoo has been closely monitoring the growth of the cub, whose birth was celebrated in Japan as well as China.
