The Panda Cub is a Girl!

The National Zoo’s recent panda cub born in August has been confirmed female by a DNA test.

Mei Xiang is a good panda mother who still spends a lot of time in her den. As the cub gets a bit older she will start to leave more. So zoo staff are still mostly observing the cub, and will do more when they can.

Here are some great moments from the panda cam all put together:
