Earlier this month, the San Diego Zoo’s adorable giant panda cub Xiao Liwu made his debut in a habitat on view to the public. Keepers said this week that the baby bear is getting comfortable in his new home, climbing branches and taking naps in the sun.

“Since the five-month-old panda cub has gone on exhibit, there have been some new adventures for him, such as climbing trees and exploring the hay-lined moat and shallow pond,” zoo officials said in a statement.

Though a confident climber, the charismatic cub occasionally tumbles, but that’s normal for his age, keepers said.
