Thanks for the post, Laura - I am SO EXCITED!!!
at least 3 months until mother and baby are on exhibit, but I have my membership in my wallet ready to go and see them - YEAH!!!!!
Our female panda, Lun Lun, just gave birth to a... well we don't know if it is a boy or a girl, new baby. The Atlanta Zoo will be waiting to see if there will be a twin (in 50% of panda births, there are twins) born in the next 24- 48 hrs. Lun Lun did set a record for the longest labor for a Giant Panda... 35 hrs.
Starting Friday, the 8th, if you log onto http://zooatlanta.org, they are supposed to have a live cam operating so you can see the new baby.
