The panda cub (yet to be named, but it should obviously be named something bad ass like Darth Vader or Bruce) was born on July 29, 2012. He's so young, he can't do much of anything, so the panda cam is hit or miss. Here's a breakdown of what I see when I check in:
- 45% of the time: Mama Panda's butt, as she crouches protectively over Baby Panda. There's no sign of Baby, but I assume he's buried somewhere beneath Mama (and not suffocating).
- 40% of the time: Mama Panda and Baby Panda cuddling and sleeping.
- 10% of the time: Baby Panda lying alone in the den while Mama Panda is eating outside. Once, I saw Baby Panda throwing a fit as he tried to roll on to his stomach. Usually, he's just sleeping happily on his tummy looking like a fur ball.
- 5% of the time: Something interesting happens.
I think a trip to the San Diego Zoo needs to happen sooner rather than later.
