A giant panda at Tokyo's Ueno Zoo, named Shin Shin, gave birth to a cub on Monday. The birth of a panda cub at Ueno Zoo is the first in 5 years.

The zoo observed copulations between Shin Shin and a male panda Ri Ri in late February.

Zoo officials had been preparing for Shin Shin's potential delivery since last month, when she started showing signs of pregnancy.

The first couple of weeks are crucial; the previous cub could not make it. I wish this one does, and we have another panda to see!
