San Diego Zoo's Panda Cub Gets a Name

The San Diego Zoo's 15-week-old giant panda received his weekly veterinary exam and was bestowed a name in recognition of his mother. The Chinese name, Yun Zi, which means "son of cloud," is appropriate because the baby's mother was named Bai Yun, meaning "white cloud." Here at ZooBorns we were rooting for Xiao Lóng, which means "little dragon," but the fluffy little cub does bear resemblance to a cloud of fur.
