This morning, at about 7:15, the San Diego Zoo had their first opportunity to examine Bai Yun’s newest cub. The exam lasted only 3 minutes, but in that time the zoo’s veterinarians were able to determine that the 25-day-old cub is healthy and weighs in at a robust 704 grams (24.8 ounces or 1.55 pounds).
Veterinarians were able to do a quick, yet thorough, exam of the cub’s limbs, mouth, ears, and more, and everything looks good. While it may be a few more weeks before they know what the cub’s sex is, or whether or not it has webbed toes or a spot on its tail, today was an important step in confirming that this cub has the most important quality that a panda cub can have: good health!
