ATLANTA (AP) - Zoo Atlanta's panda cub is growing steadily,
hitting nearly 5 pounds this week.
The cub, which is about the size of a football, measures 16
inches from nose to tail.
He was about 4 ounces and the size of a stick of butter when he was born Aug. 31.
During a veterinary examination Tuesday, the cub wiggled and
writhed as zookeepers examined him.
He is the second cub born at Zoo Atlanta and the only born at a U.S. zoo this year.
Cub Mei Lan was born two years ago.
