    Ohhh, that is sooo sad. Poor baby. Poor Mama, too----she was searching around for her baby and appeared depressed.

    Mama Panda was exhausted, she slept Thursday for the first time in days.

    I hope they reunite her with her other baby, and soon.

    Awwww...that is so sad. I thought this was the Atlanta panda for a minute, who just had a baby this week!

    I know the article is sad but I couldn't help but notice this sentence:

    "Ya Ya was mated with 11-year-old Ling Ling from Wolong in April. The pandas watched a mating video before breeding."

    Panda porn?? Sorry, couldn't resist.

    RIP, little panda baby. SO sad. I bet Steve Irwin is in heaven, holding it.

    If this is sex education for pandas - how come all we got to watch in middle school was a video of little sperms in tuxedeos courting an egg?
    FUN... is a renewable resource!

    Oh poor mama and baby. You know, when you hear bear you think of a good size baby and this little one weighed three ounces.

    I thought that too! I kept hearing on the news about the baby panda and because of all the news here of new baby I just assumed it was our baby panda here in Atlanta. So sad.

    I guess co-sleeping can turn out bad for many species! So sad.

    I had a moment when my heart skipped thinking it was our Atlanta panda too. Still so sad for Mama

    That is sweet to think of Steve caring for the bitty one.

    I have to add, since obviously several of us are keeping tabs on the Atlanta panda baby...can you imagine 35 hours of labor to deliver a 4oz baby??? I thought my delivery was tough!

    Yes, apparently Ya Ya is inconsolable. The keepers say that she has been wailing looking for her cub. Poor thing. Heartbreaking because you can't explain it to them, you know, she's very confused. They say the keepers that are assigned to take care of her will be trying to prepare special foods for her in the coming days and they are not sure of the plans to reunite her with her surviving twin cub.

    This breaks my heart. Why is there hesitation to reunite her with her other cub? Are they afraid the same thing may happen?

    I think it happened because she was so exhausted--the article said she hadn't slept in 2 days. If they are afraid of that happening again, maybe they could just give her cub to her during her awake hours, and then remove the cub during her sleeping hours???

    Poor thing....

    I think that is why they dont want to give her the cub yet, she was so tired and that is how she crushed the other one. I think it is just a safety measure. It breaks me heart though.
