this is Kwina

Last week our little panda cub took her first steps in the outside area. Undeterred, she climbed into the trees and met the crested deer. The zookeepers came with a beautiful name for her: Kwina. In Nepalese this means Queen. A worthy name for one of the important females within the European breeding program coordinated by Rotterdam zoo. Her father Arjun will soon move to Sweden. He is making room for a new panda female from Germany. Her name is Chima and she will be staying in Rotterdam for a year. Both females are not yet sexually mature and will grow up in our zoo. Next year our Kwina will get company by a male.
