Ueno Zoo officials announced that the baby panda born at the zoo on June 12th is a girl! At the time of the announcement she was 17.6 centimetres long and weighed 283.9 grams. She and her 11 year old mother are doing well.
I was happy to see the baby panda's parents at the zoo in January. I think there will be another zoo visit in my future when this baby gets a little older.
