Welcome to the Smithsonian's National Zoo's Panda Cams, where you can watch giant pandas Tian Tian and Mei Xiang. Be sure to toggle back and forth between Panda Cam 1 and Panda Cam 2 using the tabs at the top of the video player to get the full Panda Cam experience.
Joyful news:a precious giant panda cub has arrived! Mei Xiang gave birth at 6:35 p.m., Aug. 21, and is caring for her newborn attentively. Keepers are watching Mei Xiang’s behavior and hope to see her nurse the cub and cradle it close to keep him/her warm. They’re also listening for loud squeals, which are signs of a healthy cub. Watch along with us via the Panda Cam!
