SAN DIEGO (AP) - The newest panda at the San Diego Zoo has a new tooth and a clean bill of health and soon it will have a new name too.
Zoo officials say the 4-month-old cub had its 11th veterinary examination Thursday and the tooth was found on the upper left side of its mouth.
Senior veterinarian Tracy Clippinger tells KNSD-TV (bitly.com/Sg6JQl) that she checked the male cub's heart, lungs and belly and he is in excellent health.
She says the cub is pushing up on all four legs and while he isn't walking yet, he is beyond the crawling stage.
On Nov. 13, there will be a cub-naming ceremony at the zoo. The cub's name will be chosen from public suggestions.
