We have a major cute alert to bring you -- an update on the baby panda in Taiwan that's been learning to walk.

The 110-day-old panda cub can now move around pretty well on her own.

But video shows that as she starts to make a break for it, her mother steps in, picks her up by the scruff of her neck, and drags her back.

A spokesperson at the Taipei Zoo says mama bears have concerns just like humans.

Officials at the zoo are holding a contest to name her. The results will be revealed at the end of October.
