From the National Zoo yesterday:

“Mei Xiang, our 22-year-old giant panda, continues to be a devoted mother. Our newborn cub has little fur and cannot regulate its own body temperature, so Mei Xiang cradles the cub to keep it warm.

We’re keeping an eye out for the cub’s black markings, which become visible after it turns 1 week old.”
