Panda Gulag's Newest Member

As yet unnamed three day old baby panda in Chengdu born to mom Ji Ni. Isn't it hard to believe that it takes eleven months of gestation to produce a cub the size of a chicken leg? And that Ji Ni was "weak and tense" after the delivery? I'm no zookeeper, but I am willing to bet that Ji Ni, like all pandas that munch bamboo non-stop, regularly drops poop bombs much bigger than her baby cub. Perhaps her pooing also leaves her weak and tense, I cannot say. Now if you'll excuse me, I'm feeling weak and tense and need to lay down.
