Adorable panda cub at Smithsonian's National Zoo makes media debut
Bao Bao, the giant panda cub at the Smithsonian's National Zoo, is getting used to seeing fans outside her panda house enclosure as she prepares for her public debut this month.
Bao Bao (pronounced 'bow-bow') had a tryout Monday in front of the media. After waking up in her exhibit around 8 a.m., she spent the morning crawling, climbing, following mother Mei Xiang (pronounced 'may-shong') and poking her head over rocks to a chorus of camera clicks.
