CHENGDU, July 17, Xinhua -- A 7-year-old giant panda gave birth to a cub Saturday at China Conservation and Research Center for Giant Pandas (CCRCGP). Keepers do not know which male fathered the cub, or the gender of the new addition.

This is the mother's, Shuqin, first cub. She showed strong maternal and nursing instincts, by immediately cuddling the cub and hiding it from keepers after her delivery.

The keepers could only judge that the cub was healthy as they heard it crying.

Luo Bo, deputy director of the center, said Shuqin mated with two male pandas -- Jinke and Xiangge -- in March. On June 19, there was a noticeable change to her appetite, a sign of pregnancy on pandas.
