Baby panda has 17th exam at San Diego Zoo

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CBS 8) - The San Diego Zoo's rambunctious baby panda Xiao Liwu is getting harder and harder to examine.

On Thursday, before vets could perform the exam, the animal care staff had to dry the little guy off because he had been spending time with his mother out in the rain.

The baby panda weighed in at 14 pounds. The vets were very pleased with the panda's cooperation as he continues to test his boundaries.

He also spent some time during Thursday's exam gumming bamboo.
