From Zoo Atlanta:

Thursday November 18,
Lun Lun and the cub got plenty of sleep last night, which is good because they had a big morning ahead of them. CBS’s Early Morning show taped a live cub exam this morning and announced the sex – it’s a boy!

While the vet staff tended to the cub during the exam, the keepers tended to Lun, making sure that she was stress-free and eating while the cub was away. I’m so excited to have watched the sex of the cub be announced, because it’s been such a hard secret to keep!

From Zoo Atlanta:

Friday, November 19
During yesterday’s exam of the cub, the vets weighed him and took body measurements. From the tip of his nose, to the tip of his tail, the cub is 30.7 cm long (his tail constitutes 5.7 cm of the total length!). His nose is 2 cm wide. Neck girth is 13.8 cm, chest girth is 19.5 cm and abdominal girth is 21 cm. He weighs 486 grams. Scroll down to the Saturday, November 13, update to see how much he has grown in just 6 days.

(This was Saturday, November 13:   Its weight is 297 grams. Its chest girth is 17 cm. Its total length was not measured, but its head is 4.5 cm long and its tail is an amazing 5 cm in length.)

I like the cute-o-meter, too, Beth.   bigsmile  Thanks for the video, BOP.   bigsmile  I've never seen such dirty bears!   mhihi

From Zoo Atlanta:

Saturday, November 20
This morning Lun Lun kept me very busy.  She left the cub several times to eat and drink, and also to urinate and defecate in the adjacent den.  Heather provided Lun with yellow groove bamboo last night and it wasn't a huge hit.  This morning I had the same experience, so after I cleaned up the den, I removed all of the yellow groove and gave her black bamboo instead.  Getting her to eat biscuits and fruit is no problem, but she's less interested in bamboo right now.  I had several species to try throughout the day, so today's mission was to find one that she likes.

From Zoo Atlanta:

Sunday, November
I hope tonight will be a quiet one for me, though it never seems that way when I am here. When arriving on shift, we always try to communicate what has been going on the shift before. I always seem to hear that Lun and the cub were good and sleeping most of the time. That is normally the opposite of what I seem to experience. I might get some resting from the two of them, but that only last about 20 minutes on average.  Either Lun does something to disturb the cub, or the cub is upset over something. Then it takes them a while to settle back down.  It also never fails that if I start to work on a project, one starts the cycle all over again. I couldn't even get through writing this update without being interrupted by them. I'm looking forward to the days when the cub can self-regulate its body temperature and Lun is eating normally again. Then hopefully things will be a little quieter.

Monday, November 22 Update...

Lun and cub are sleeping now. Mom is lying on her side with the cub tucked under
her arm like a little teddy bear.
It’s amazing that one day this tiny cub could be as big as Yang Yang.
This cub is definitely working on growing with how much he is nursing.
It seems like every time I come back from my weekend he has grown!
