07/09/2005: Another Artificial Insemination Success Story:
The National Zoo's giant panda, Mei Xiang, "gave birth early Saturday to a squealing, vigorous cub that was conceived through artificial insemination.
The typical cub weighs 3 ounces to 5 ounces and is about the size of a stick of butter. It was too early to determine the gender and exact weight of the cub, zoo officials said, because veterinarians kept their distance, not wanting to interrupt the mother-cub bonding."
