A baby panda born Sunday night at the Smithsonian National Zoo delighted zoo officials, biologists and visitors to the park on Monday.
Not long before the National Zoo announced that Washington's most beloved resident — the panda Tai Shan — was heading to China in December 2009, a secret plan took hold halfway around the world for the National Zoo to be able to hold on to the bear just awhile longer.
Round-the-clock surveillance, spacious accommodations and a team of specialists available at a moment's notice, all for a potential panda no bigger than a stick of butter.
Two giant pandas born in American zoos were headed to China by special cargo jet Thursday to become part of a breeding program in their endangered species's native land.
Put away those panda-patterned baby shower items: No giant panda births are expected at the National Zoo in the near future.
Bao Bao has turned out to be calm and relaxed, more subdued than older brother Tai Shan, said biologist Laurie Thompson, who has worked with the pandas for years.
The zoo has resolved problems with captive giant panda breeding and helped breed a male cub, Tai Shan, he noted.
