Giant Panda Mei Xiang Gives Birth at Smithsonian's National Zoo

An extremely cute panda cub who was born on Friday 23rd August at a Washington zoo is said to be doing well. Zoo keepers from the Smithsonian National Zoo examined the giant panda cub, who weighed in at 4lb 8oz, and said that it had a steady heartbeat, a full stomach and it is both nursing and digesting normally. The cub was born to Mei Xiang, who devastatingly also gave birth to a stillborn the evening after. - Washington, WA, United States - Wednesday 28th August 2013 (6 Pictures)
