The San Diego Zoo is world renown for many reasons. One of them happens to be their Giant Panda Research Station and exhibit, — one of only four in the entire U.S. So when news of a pregnancy from a member of these endangered species gets out, its usually a big deal (cue news report from Ron Burgundy and the KVWN Channel 4 News Team).

Out of those four, San Diego’s exhibit is most successful at reproduction, as evidenced by this week’s news that Bai Yun is pregnant, for the fifth time, which makes her and mate/lover Gao Gao the most reproductive pandas in captivity.

Unfortunately for zoo visitors, she will not be on display until she has the baby in August. But fear not, those of you not on vacation and stuck at work, because the Panda Cam will be tracking Bai Yun’s every move.
