Cuteness alert: 6-week-old panda check up

Posted by Rachel Leigh - email

SAN DIEGO, CA (WFLX) - A giant panda team at San Diego Zoo gave a 6-week-old panda cub a check up.

The male cub weighs 5.1 pounds and measured 1.3 feet in length. That means he put on more than a pound since last week.

The San Diego Zoo is one of four U.S. zoos with giant pandas. The cub's birth in August attracted so much traffic to the zoo's Web site that the online panda cam feed crashed.

The zoo's blog also went down for short time.
