Roly-Poly Panda

Watch San Diego Zoo officials get their first look at a four-week-old giant panda cub. Workers had to wait until its mother was comfortable leaving the cub alone before they could remove it from its den. Click here for video.

The giant pandas are on loan from China. In keeping with Chinese tradition, the male cub will not be named until he is at least 100 days old.

Senior zoo veterinarian Geoff Pye says the cub is healthy and starting to show its black-and-white markings. He says the cub has reached its "initial cute stage" and is "very roly poly."
