Giant panda has sixth cub
Tuesday 31 July 2012
A 20-year-old giant panda has given birth at San Diego Zoo, and set a record.
Officials at the zoo said it is the sixth cub born to Bai Yun, the most at a breeding facility outside of China. Zookeepers and researchers watched the birth via a closed circuit camera mounted inside the birthing den. In a blog post, zoo officials said Bai Yun immediately scooped the cub into her arms and comforted the newborn.
Because of her advanced age, the pregnancy was considered high risk, but zookeepers said mother and baby are doing fine.
