    Default Tai Shan the Panda turns three



    The National Zoo's beloved giant panda Tai Shan celebrated his third birthday today with a special popsicle filled with frozen bamboo leaves. The cub's other birthday present was a fruitcicle made of water and gelatin in the shape of a three.
    The roly-poly panda was born to parents Mei Xiang and Tian Tian July 9, 2005. The cub is the first surviving panda born at the National Zoo in its 119-year history.
    The happy family may soon get bigger if Mei Xiang bears another cub this year, as her keepers hope. The female panda was artificially inseminated in March, though it's too soon to tell if she's pregnant or just experiencing a "pseudopregnancy" in which she exhibits similar hormone rises and behavior changes to a real pregnancy. These false pregnancies are common in giant pandas.
