Panda cub struts his stuff, downward dogs in Asia

(REUTERS) - It's baby steps for this cub - while panda lovers near and far travelled to Washington, DC's National Zoo to see him.

Nearly five-month old Bei Bei has certainly caused quite a stir.

"I cried because it was very emotional for me to see him go from being a little baby to where he is now because it's a really hard process and breading pandas is really hard," said panda enthusiast Alexa Knoel.

Bei Bei was born on Aug 22 and, up until now, was seen by the general public only via social media and the zoo's Panda Cam.

But many guests say, it was well-worth the wait.

They say the name Bei Bei, which means "precious treasure", is fitting.

Now look at this happy family!

A koala at an Australian Reptile Park has adopted two new cubs, despite already having one of her own.

Staff say the three youngins' have bonded and are doing well.

Now how's THIS for a downward dog.

Organisers say they're confident these canines helped set a new world record for the largest dog yoga class in Hong Kong.

Participants say it's a great bonding experience - emotionally and physically.

"I feel really, really good. It's kind of a really close relationship with my dog," said dog yoga participant Susan Chan.

They call it "doga"... and no stretchy pants are necessary.
