Giant Panda Cub Born At The Smithsonian’s National Zoo

A huge congrats to the attentive and caring mother, Mei Xiang! 

According to the Smithsonian National Zoo, the moment the cub was born on August 21st, Mei Xiang picked up the newborn cub and immediately began to cradle and care for it. Just like any loving and devoted mother would. 

Animal care staff heard the cub vocalize and were able to catch a glimpse of the newborn. As of now, the team is monitoring Mei Xiang and her cub via the Zoo's panda cams. From what the team has observed so far, the panda cub appears to be strong and healthy. 

Check out some of the Smithsonian's panda cam footage below!

Simba!

Just kidding -- it's one of two endangered Amur tiger cubs born at the Minnesota Zoo on June 17.

While the smaller of the two passed away (one-third don't survive the first 30 days of life), this little guy is being raised by handlers because mom wasn't displaying the quality of maternal care required to raise the cub.

Here's the obligatory video.
