Panda Born at Zoo Atlanta

Lun Lun, a 13-year-old panda, has given birth today to the only baby panda born in the US this year. It is the third cub born to Lun Lun and her partner Yang Yang.

The cub and mother are being monitored by zoo veterinarians. The baby will not be on view to the public until spring of next year. Until then you can check out the Panda Cam which is on from 10-5 Monday through Friday.
