A New Baby Panda!
We are avid panda people, and my husband, Doug, called me early this morning excited to inform me that Ms. Mei had a baby cub last night! According to the National Zoo, the panda cub was born around 10:46 p.m. last night.
According to the chief veterinarian at the National Zoo, “Mei Xiang is behaving exactly the same way she did when Tai Shan was born. She is cradling her cub closely.”
This is very exciting, because there have been many failed attempts to have a cub with Mei Xiang and Tian Tian. It will be exciting to see this cub in person when he/she eventually will be on display at the National Zoo.
Keep your eyes on the panda cam and on the National Zoo’s website!
