Think blue, not pink!

After getting a third look at the 5-week-old cub born to giant panda Bai Yun on July 29, veterinarians at the San Diego Zoo have determined that the 3.2-lb bear is a bouncing baby boy.

Though the bundle of joy is slightly smaller than his five siblings who arrived in previous years, this little guy has a healthy belly girth of 12 inches – a sign that he’s eating well. Indeed, that’s a full belly that’s begging to be rubbed!

To witness his cuteness from a variety of angles, check out the San Diego Zoo’s live Panda Cam.
