Check Out PandaCam...

The San Diego Zoo announced that its sixth Giant Panda cub was born on Sunday, July 29, at 2:10 p.m. You can check in on mom and baby here on the live PandaCAM. People all over the world are watching so be patient if the live feed is a little slow.

The San Diego Zoo has had a love affair with giant pandas ever since two of the black-and-white bears came to visit in 1987. After years of red tape and tons of application paperwork, the Zoo and China agreed on a 12-year research loan of two giant pandas, Bai Yun and Shi Shi. A brand-new exhibit area was built for the panda guests, which has since been expanded and renovated and is now called the Giant Panda Research Station. The zoo currently has four giant pandas—Bai Yun, Gao Gao, Yun Zi, and now this newest cub.
