BRUSSELS (AP) — Belgium's Pairi Daiza zoo has announced the birth of a baby panda, just three months after Chinese experts tried to artificially inseminate mother Hao Hao.

The zoo, which is around 30 miles south of Brussels, distributed a photo of the mother, holding the naked, pink cub in her mouth.

With the help of the Chinese government Hao Hao and her mate Xing Hui arrived in Belgium two years ago and Pairi Daiza adapted its zoo to build a bamboo forest and a cave to recreate their natural habitat.

The zoo said that "less than 2,000 pandas can be found in the wild, making every birth a true miracle."

Austria and Spain are the only other two European countries where pandas have been born.
