Xiao Liwu, aka “Mr. Wu,”  is the sixth panda cub born at the San Diego Zoo . His mother, Bai Yun, has given birth to all six, three girls and three boys.  Giant pandas are an endangered species native to bamboo forests in the mountains of western China.  According to the 1999-2003 census, only 1,596 pandas remained in the wild.

Shi Shi and Bai Yun, the only pair of giant pandas in America, will go on display Nov. 1 at the San Diego Zoo. The rare animals have been in quarantine, required by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, since arriving Sept. 10 from Shanghai on a 12-year research loan from China. Shi Shi, a 16-year-old male, and Bai Yun, a 5 1/2-year-old female, have yet to meet, and it may be a while before they do because pandas are solitary by nature, said zoo spokeswoman Georgeanne Irvine.

Like international royalty, the giant pandas Shi Shi and Bai Yun arrived Tuesday at the San Diego Zoo in a high-security motorcade escorted by the California Highway Patrol and trailed by news crews. The phenomenon known locally as "pandamonium" was in full evidence as the charismatic but endangered mammals arrived for a 12-year visit for research, breeding and display purposes. "This truly is the beginning of the North American rescue plan for giant pandas," zoo President Bill Fox said.

San Diego Zoo officials said Saturday that they were optimistic another baby giant panda will be on its way after Gao Gao and Bai Yun retired to their favorite spot under a few bushes and mated over two days. It was the second mating for the giant pandas, both 13, at the zoo. Bai Yun gave birth in 2003 to Mei Sheng. Bai Yun will probably give birth again in about 4 1/2 months.
