100 day giant panda cub celebration

Only cub born in the U.S. will get a name on February 15

The only giant panda cub born in the U.S. in 2010 will soon reach a new milestone: receiving his name. The cub’s name will be revealed during the 100 Day Giant Panda Cub Celebration at Zoo Atlanta on February 15, 2011.

Like his older siblings before him, the cub will be named in keeping with Chinese tradition, which holds that newborns receive their names around their 100th day of life. Additional information on the event will be provided as details are available. Save the date, and stay tuned for exciting announcements.

Born to Lun Lun on November 3, 2010, the cub is expected to make his public debut this spring. In the meantime, fans can keep track of the cub’s progress on the world-famous PandaCam presented by EarthCam, Monday through Friday from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. on zooatlanta.org.
