The zoo has scheduled a press event Thursday to announce more details about the cub and details about a second stillborn cub.
The surviving panda cub has been described as healthy and active.
Zookeepers conducted a 10-minute physical examination days after it was
born. Veterinarians said the cub had a steady heartbeat and appeared to
be digesting its food.
It takes time to determine a cub’s gender. A DNA sample also was collected to determine the cub’s paternity.
Panda mother Mei Xiang (may-SHONG) was artificially inseminated with
sperm from Tian Tian (tee-YEN tee-YEN), the male panda at the National
Zoo, and a panda named Gao Gao at the San Diego Zoo.
