Giant Panda gives birth at National Zoo
WASHINGTON - Washington's National Zoo says its female giant panda has given birth to a cub.
The zoo says Mei Xiang gave birth to the cub Saturday at 5:34 p.m. If the cub survives, it would be the 17-year-old panda's third surviving offspring.
Mei Xiang's first cub, Tai Shan, was born in 2005. Her second cub, Bao Bao, turns 2-years-old on Sunday.
She also gave birth to a stillborn cub in 2013. And in 2012, Mei Xiang gave birth to a cub that died after just six days. Its lungs hadn't fully developed.
