National Zoo: Panda Cub Shows Markings

LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — Cub watch at the National Zoo is still going strong.

Mei Xiang’s cub is now showing some markings, making the less than two-week old cub appear more like a panda, than a stick of butter.

The tiny cub’s ear and eye markings are visible in a picture tweeted by the National Zoo.

After an initial exam, the cub appeared to be in good health, although its gender is not yet known.
