Red lights flicker over the sleeping panda as remote-control cameras hum in the corners of a temperature-controlled cage. An around-the-clock watch has been posted, and scientists are standing by with the latest in veterinary technology, including an antibody-rich solution refined from panda blood. Officials at the National Zoo are leaving nothing to chance as they prepare for the birth, expected any day now, of an extremely rare panda cub.

Ling-Ling, the female giant panda who symbolized the opening of relations between the United States and China, was found dead Wednesday. She and her mate, Hsing-Hsing, have been the National Zoo's most popular feature for 20 years. The black-and-white, bamboo-eating animals have attracted about 3 million people a year since their arrival, zoo spokesman Mike Morgan said. Zoo officials said the death was unexpected, although at 23 Ling-Ling was old for a panda--the oldest outside China.
