PandaCam is the most popular feature on the Animal Planet website.

It's a live video feed from the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. of giant panda Mei Xiang and her six–week–old cub and it has registered over 1.1 million page views on the Animal Planet site.


The cub was born at 3:41 a.m. on Saturday, July 9, and only on August 2 were the staff at the zoo able to determine that it's a male.

On August 8, when the pictures above and below were taken, the cub weighed 2.6 pounds and measured 14.25 inches in length.

A story by D'Vera Cohn, which appeared on the front page of yesterday's Washington Post, explored the devotion of people around the world to the life and times of the pandas.


8% of those who visit spend 20 to 30 minutes there.

My kitchen wall is filled with panda pictures.

Will watch them grow up. Too bad I'm so far away from being able to see them.
