San Diego Zoo scientists performed their third examination of the zoo’s newest panda addition this weekend, confirming that it is a boy, and released the video to the public.

The as-yet unnamed panda cub was born on July 29, 2012 to great fanfare, and is the sixth cub for its mother Bai Yun — herself the first panda born in captivity.

Watch the video of the sub’s examination, courtesy of The Guardian, below. (And don’t miss :24, where he coos.)
