Giant panda gives birth

Professor Steve Steve reports that his distant relative Mei Xiang gave birth to a cub at the National Zoo yesterday. NPR reports that the zoo did not know that the panda was pregnant until recently, when, according to Professor Steve Steve, she told her keepers that she “might be just a little bit pregnant.” Reuters reports that scientists will shortly perform a paternity test.
