Bei Bei Opens His Eyes
Keepers had a chance to weigh Bei Bei on Oct. 1. He now weighs 4.5 lbs. (2070g)????half a pound increase since he was weighed the previous week. Vets did a thorough check and took some body measurements. From Bei Bei????s head to the tip of his tail is 33 cm., just shy of 14 inches. His eyes are now partially open and teeth buds are developing! His ear canals are still closed but he should be able to hear some noises.
