Watch: panda cub receives her first vaccine

Updated

Attention panda lovers, the National Zoo has an update on our favorite panda cub and it comes in the form of a video.

On Wednesday the panda cub received her first vaccine during a veterinary exam where it was reported that she is very healthy and gained almost another pound since October 18. She now weighs 6.73 pounds, is 16.5 inches around her belly and 19.29 inches long.

“The cub has started crawling and can often be seen testing her new motor skills in the den on the panda cams,” The National Zoo release said.

The panda cam, which returned after the 16-day government shutdown, has become a way for visitors to watch Mei Xiang, Tian Tian along with their cub in the zoo habitat.
