    Panda Cub Xi Lan

    ATLANTA (MyFOX Atlanta) -- Xi Lan is the name of Zoo Atlanta’s newest panda cub. The name was revealed during a ceremony at the zoo Monday on the cub’s 100th day birthday. The name means Atlanta’s joy.

    The cub was born Aug. 31, but Chinese tradition dictates zookeepers wait until he is 100 days old to choose a name.

    The name was selected in an online poll on the zoo's Web site which drew 45,000 votes. It was chosen from a list of 12 suggestions given by zoo officials, zoo members, local media and China's Chengdu panda reserve.

    Chengdu owns Zoo Atlanta's panda couple, Lun Lun (LOON LOON) and Yang Yang (YAHNG YAHNG), and the cubs.

    The cub is the second one born at Zoo Atlanta. Mei Lan (MAY LAHN) was born in 2006.

    thanks, Honey! There is our little man!
    He's so precious and chunky! I can't wait to go see him in person. I guess I'll have to get a Zoo membership this year.
    He's so fluffy like his Mama! We were so afraid he wouldn't make it when he was born, but thanks to his great Mom, he is thriving!

    awww! he's so cute!

    I watched a special quite a while back about the baby panda Tai-Shan(sp?). It covered from his conception to his 1-year b-day. It was so cute!
