Panda cub

It may not look like it, but this teeny guy will one day grow into a Giant Panda. The cub, confirmed to be a boy, was the only Giant Panda cub born in the United States this year, making his a particularly notable birth.

The boy, who will not be named until he is 100 days old, following Chinese custom, was born to Zoo Atlanta's 13-year-old panda Lun Lun on Nov. 3.

Lun Lun and the cub will debut to the public sometime in spring 2011. Before then, catch mom and son on the zoo's PandaCam, Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. EDT.
