This is Xi Lan (shee-lahn). He's Zoo Atlanta's most recent giant panda cub. Xi is 6 months old and has just now learned to climb. Currently, the climbing structure is his favorite place to be whether he's sleeping or awake.

Great shot, I have mixed emotions about pandas and many other animals, but considering China I guess this is the only way to keep the species viable.

I have mixed feelings about keeping any animal in captivity, but guess it serves a purpose. Nice shot of the baby.

Beautiful colours and composition, and the main subject is really cute!

This is just like a little one, sleeping the day away. Post some more as the panda grows, so we can follow along with you.

Such a cute baby! And his perch really draws the eye right to him.
