Aww: Baby panda adorably fails to roll over

Even baby pandas struggle to get going in the morning, it would seem.

Video of a young panda in China is getting a lot of attention online.  The footage shows the adorable panda cub lying on its back and crunching repeatedly in an attempt to turn itself over.

The cub was born early last month but doesn't have a name yet.  Folks at the Sichuan Province research center where she's living call her "Xidou's Baby" in reference to her mother.

It may be some time before the little cub actually succeeds in her quest to roll over.  At 5 weeks old, the cub's limbs are still too weak to allow her to even stand, and her eyes won't even open all the way until she is close to 2 months old.
