The mother panda ignored her baby at first. But thankfully, she suddenly made the connection and grabbed her beautiful newborn.

Posted by BBC Earth to YouTube on November 2, 2016, the adorable video shows the mother panda, Min-Min, and her baby got reunited in the Taipei Zoo after being separated for a month.

After Min-Min gave birth, the zoo employees were worried when the connection between a mother and child doesn’t seem to exist.

The baby usually stays with the mother right after birth. However, in Min-Min's case, the zookeepers were obliged to run some tests to check on the baby's welfare.

They needed to take the risk even if they knew that doing that meant the mother might not bond with her bundle of joy.

Once the panda's caretakers made sure that the newborn was okay, they put the baby back in the cage.

There was no great reunion at first, and Min-Min even turned away from the baby. Then the mother suddenly made the connection and came over to grab her offspring.
