One of China's older female pandas gave birth to a female cub at the Chengdu Giant Panda Protection and Research Center. Li Li is 19-years-old, an incredible age for becoming a mom, considering pandas' average life span is 25 years.

She was artificially inseminated. The newborn weighs 5.6 ounces and hasn't yet developed the trademark black and white fur it'll get later on.

The staff says both mom and baby are doing well.
