Video: Taipei City Zoo released video showing a giant panda being reunited with her cub after a month apart.

The Taipei Zoo in Taipei City, Taiwan has released pictures of the country's first panda cub, just a little over a month old — and she's amazing. The little one, named Yuan Zai, belongs to Yuan Yuan, the female giant panda presented as part of a pair by China four years ago to mark warming ties with Taiwan.  

Check out the mother-cub reunion — it's the stuff of adorable baby animal dreams.
