Hello Baby Panda Face


via Smithsonian’s National Zoo

From the Smithsonian’s National Zoo:

“Exciting news! When giant panda Mei Xiang left the den yesterday to eat some bamboo, the panda team was able to retrieve her 3-week-old cub for its first neonatal exam.

During the quick checkup, keepers weighed the active and responsive newborn.

It tips the scales at 634.8 grams–just under 1.5 pounds! We are encouraged to see that our young panda appears to be healthy and vibrant.

At a glance, the cub’s wispy fur is growing in nicely. Its bright, pink skin still shows in spots on its muzzle, the top of its head, upper back and tail. In another few weeks, its eyes and ear canals will begin to open.”
