Smithsonian’s National Zoo’s Panda Cams: Panda babies soon?

The number of pandas at the Smithsonian National Zoo might grow by one in just a few days, officials announced on Friday: Mei Xiang appears to be pregnant.

The 22-year-old giant panda, whose name is pronounced may-SHONG, has “tissue consistent with fetal development,” according to the zoo, which cautioned in its statement that “it is too early to determine if the tissue is a completely viable developing fetus” because there is “a substantial possibility that Mei Xiang could resorb or miscarry a fetus.” The zoo said that scientists do not fully understand why some mammals resorb fetuses.

But if she is pregnant, the zoo’s veterinarians estimate, Mei Xiang could give birth within the next few days. The zoo currently has just an adult pair of giant pandas.
