At approximately 10:09 p.m. Sept. 20, Panda Cam viewers got what may be the best view yet of the Smithsonian’s National Zoo’s five-day-old panda cub. Balanced atop mother Mei Xiang’s arm, the cub squirms and vocalizes while being groomed.


Zoo staff and volunteers are diligently monitoring both bears over the Panda Cam along with tens of thousands of panda enthusiasts. Viewers can help the Zoo capture video by taking a screen grab and sharing it on Flickr.


To follow the panda cub’s progress, read the updates from the Zoo’s panda keepers and check for news on the Zoo’s Twitter feed and Facebook page.
