Video footage of an adorable baby giant panda clinging desperately to her zookeeper's leg in South Korea has garnered more than four million hits on YouTube.
In the viral clip the zookeeper weighs little Fu Bao on a scale and then places the baby panda on the floor in an enclosure at the Everland Zoo near Seoul.

But it seems the six-month-old cub -- whose name means "a treasure that gives happiness" -- does not want to be separated from her keeper.
Fu Bao wraps her front paws around his leg, clinging on even as he tries to walk away.
She is carried across the room until the zookeeper bends down to untangle his leg from Fu Bao's grip.
The persistent cub tries to grab him once again before she gives up and rolls over in retreat.
The near two-minute long video shows the zookeeper placing the baby panda next to a pile of bamboo leaves before walking away.
"I am in love with that panda. He's just so cute and furry," commented one user.
Another user added: "Bruh, I couldn't have this job. They'd fire me cuz I wouldn't get anything done except cuddling pandas."
Fu Bao was born last year to a pair of giant pandas presented to South Korea by Chinese President Xi Jinping in 2016.

The zoo closed in March 2020 as the coronavirus pandemic hit and reopened in July before shutting down again in November.
The male cub is "Singapore's very own Simba,” referring to the iconic Disney animated film Lion King. It is rare for lions to be conceived through artificial insemination, with the procedure first carried out successfully in 2018 -- resulting in two cubs in South Africa.
