It's a boy!

Experts at Zoo Atlanta finally know the sex of a panda cub born more than two weeks ago.

The zoo's veterinary team and an expert from China got a chance to examine the little guy yesterday.

The panda mama has started leaving him for short times to eat and drink.

The vets say the panda cub weighs just over eleven ounces.

While his eyes aren't open yet, the baby panda has started to develop the distinctive black patches under his eyes and on his shoulders.

The zoo has yet to name their new panda.
