A baby giant panda was born last night at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. It's the first captive birth of a panda at the zoo since 2005 and only the second captive panda birth at the zoo ever. Mother and child are reported to both being doing well, while pappa panda is passing out cigars to all the other bears at the zoo. The zoo will follow Chinese custom and name the baby panda in 100 days. Do you have any suggestions?

Hate to be the bearer of bad news, but the little panda baby died over the weekend due to liver problems.

Captive birth of pandas will surely lead to the revival of these species and prevent them form being extinct, just like the Dodo bird in Australia. I do hope that there are more births like this in the zoos and later they can be released into the wild.
