According to Geoff Pye, San Diego Zoo senior veterinarian, determining the sex of a giant panda cub is no easy task. The veterinary team will wait for an opportunity to exam the cub one or two more times before announcing whether it is male or female. Weighing in at 36 ounces or 2.2 pounds and measuring 33 centimeters in length, the giant panda cub is not yet developed well enough physically to determine its sex compared to many other animal species at this stage.
