VIDEO: Best View Yet of Baby Panda

After some vigorous grooming, the new cub might be ready for a close-up

UPDATE: So, remember that grooming we mentioned might be underway judging from recent video taken of the giant panda mother and cub from the National Zoo? Turns out, our hunch was right. New video from Thursday evening shows the best view yet of the cub squirming atop the mother’s arm as she grooms her baby. Look for the blur of white and listen for the telltale squeals as only a giant panda cub could make them.
