Giant Panda Tai Shan: Over the Years

Tai Shan, the giant panda cub at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo, ventured outside for the first time this morning, Dec. 22, under the close eye of his mother, Mei Xiang. Tai Shan was born July 9, 2005 at 3:41 a.m. He is the first surviving giant panda cub born at the Smithsonian National Zoo. D.C. Mayor Adrian Fenty once called Tai Shan Washington’s most important citizen. He was originally supposed to be sent to China when he turned 2, but under an agreement with the Chinese government, the zoo kept him for an additional two years.
