Qizhen gave birth to a male baby panda in Sichuan on July 15.
The 18-year-old captive-bred panda Qizhen, considered old among pandas eligible for pregnancy, gave her sixth birth in Sichuan on July 15.
The cub, the tenth by the mother, weighed 168 grams at birth. Both stay very healthy, said Wu Kongju, a panda expert with the Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Center.
Wu said Qizhen gave birth sixth times over the past 11 years. She can still have one more birth just before she turns 20.
"It will be very rare for a panda to have seven births in her lifetime," Wu said.
