Baby Panda Born At San Diego Zoo!
Oh, squee of squees! Joy rippled through the panda-verse yesterday: a mommy panda in the San Diego Zoo gave birth to a BABY PANDA!!!! Bai Yun gave birth to her sixth cub, which, if you know anything about how resistant pandas are to having sex, is a huge accomplishment. The newborn baby panda, whose gender will be unknown for several months, joins Bai Lun, daddy Gao Gao, and three-year-old brother Yun Zee. Her four other babies have been sent to China, obviously misdirected on their way to my house. Right now the panda young’un, which zookeepers jokingly call a “butter stick” due to its tiny size, is all pink, hairless, and nasty-looking. But you can bet that as soon as there are pics, I’ll be on it like white on rice … I mean, panda fur. [Los Angeles Times] [Photo: Getty]
