Giant panda Update Aug 31, 2013

This morning, the panda team offered Mei Xiang apple water, a bamboo smoothie, some bamboo, sugar cane and a pear. She was not interested in eating or drinking anything. Keepers are not worried about her lack of appetite: When she had Tai Shan, she did not eat anything until he was 16 days old, and today the cub is only 8 days old. This is expected behavior for a bear.

Although the keepers did not get a good look at the cub while they were in the den this morning, they continue to hear good vocalizations and get good visuals over the monitors.
