Giant panda Update Sep 9, 2013

Mei Xiang and the cub continue to do well. Over the weekend, Mei left her den for a few minutes several times, once to get a drink of water. Keepers are starting to do some training with Mei Xiang in her den (as opposed to just feeding her) in an effort to facilitate our efforts to collect milk and the cub. Keepers were also able to snap a few photos!

On Sunday morning, Mei put down her cub in the den for about a minute. The cub vocalized (grunting) while Mei honked at her. Keepers recall Mei using similar vocalizations with Tai Shan.
