Photos of Young Panda Cubs

Panda 082405

Three weeks after the birth of a giant panda cub, seen during its weekly exam August 24, 2005, San Diego Zoo veterinarians have determined that the cub is a girl. The female cub weighs 22 ounces or just in excess of a pound and is 29.5 centimetres from the tip of its nose to the base of its tail. As Chinese tradition dictates, naming the cub will not occur until the cub is 100 days old. REUTERS/Ken Bohn/San Diego Zoo/Handout

A three-week old giant panda cub takes a nap in the arms of its mother, Mei Xiang, at the Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington, D.C., August 1, 2005. Curious veterinarians at the zoo lured Mei Xiang out of her den with a bamboo snack and sneaked a look at her cub, born July 9 last month, and found that it is a male, the zoo said on Tuesday. The cub is now 12 inches (30 cm) long and weighs 1.8 pounds (825.7 grams). Picture taken August 1, 2005. EDITORIAL USE ONLY REUTERS/Courtesy of Smithsonian's National Zoo/Handout
