WASHINGTON (WJZ) — The new addition at the National Zoo is getting a lot of attention.

A team of panda caretakers hope to get a first look at the panda cub born Friday evening.

Right now, the cub is about the size of a stick of butter.

But caretakers won’t be able to do their evaluation until mama bear gives them the opportunity.

Zookeepers are keeping a close watch on mom and her cub because the first few weeks are very critical for both.
