National Zoo Shows Off Newborn Giant Panda Cub: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

"The Smithsonian`s National Zoo shared video of a giant panda cub undergoing a veterinary exam less than a day after being the first of a set of twins to be born.


The video, posted to YouTube, shows the newborn panda squeaking and squealing through its first medical exam about 6:30 a.m. Sunday, a mere 11 hours after its birth at 5:35 p.m. the previous day."


There is no animal more adorable than a giant panda cub; they look like stuffed animals that have miraculously come to life. It`s not surprising that panda videos are almost as popular as cat videos; I`m still waiting for the first panda to become an Internet star like Grumpy Cat. The problem is that all of these terribly cute creatures look the same; if one had a distinctive birthmark he would achieve Grumpy Cat like fame.

But there is nothing remotely cute or endearing about a newborn pandas, they look like pink lizards that escaped from the bowels of hell.

Oh, but the ugly duckling newborn panda in this video is going to grow up to be the most adorable creature in the world.
