National Zoo...

April 23, 2010

We are closely observing Mei Xiang, our female giant panda, for signs of pregnancy. We have not confirmed that she is pregnant, but are happy to announce that if she gives birth, our web cams will live stream the event. Beginning tonight, Friends of the National Zoo volunteer behavior watchers will be observing Mei 24 hours a day to monitor her behavior, and our scientists will continue analyzing her hormones so we can better estimate when she might give birth.

We remain hopeful that Mei is pregnant and invite you to stay tuned to our panda cams for the latest news. Please be aware that we are limiting viewing sessions to five minutes, which will allow for more people to view the pandas via the cam. After five minutes, you can refresh the page to reconnect. If you are unable to connect, try the other cam or try again later. Read our panda updates and follow our Twitter feed.

Thanks for your continued interest and for supporting wildlife conservation around the world.

Sincerely,
Bob Lamb
Executive Director
Friends of the National Zoo

I've seen her ask for treat a couple of times from the Keepers, and they're more than happy to oblige her Smile

The only thing missing from her den is the grate, right? She even has a large stick in there, I've never seen that before (hard to see it in this scap but it is by her head).

Now we can see ? Tian pacing outside and Mei is apparently asking for a door to be opened ? ?:dunno:
She is now eating some 'boo but there doesn't seem to be that much food there.
