Your daily dose of "awwww"-dorableness comes courtesy the San Diego Zoo, who have posted this short video clip of their baby panda getting a belly tickle and his little leg kicking thanks to a rub on a spot on his ear. The footage is of the cub's fourth veterinary exam.

The baby panda was born July 29 to giant panda momma Bai Yun. The birth was a milestone, breaking the record for the most giant panda cubs born at a breeding facility outside of China; it was Bai Yun's sixth delivery at the San Diego Zoo.

For those looking to see more panda life at the San Diego Zoo, they've got a "panda cam" set up so fans can keep up with Bai Yun and her panda family.
