We Really Shouldn't Have Watched The Panda Birth Livestream
The National Zoo's panda gave birth Saturday, and the zoo streamed the whole event online — which didn't make the moment easier to watch.By Matt Picht | August 22, 2015
Congratulations everyone, the U.S. national panda population has just gone up by one.
Mei Xiang, a giant panda housed at the Smithsonian National Zoo, went into labor Friday and emerged half an hour later with a healthy baby cub.
And because it's 2015, the zoo livestreamed the entire birth start to finish on their website and app. And frankly, that's something we could do without. Thanks!
