Little bear opens its eyes for the first time
WASHINGTON, D.C. (KYMA, KECY) - The Smithsonian's National Zoo is sharing an adorable update on its new giant panda cub.
The six-week-old cub opened it's eyes during a recent checkup. Veterinarians say it was wide awake and alert during the examination. The cub's eyes should fully open in the next two-weeks.
The little guy...or girl...is the first born at the National Zoo in five-years.
It's still unclear if it's a male or female. It often takes weeks, if not months, for a panda cub's gender to be visible. Veterinarians will used DNA testing to find out whether it's a little boy, or a little girl.
