Baby Panda Bao Bao Meets The Press & Public At National Zoo: Video

By Robert Paul Reyes

Washington D.C is well-known for the rats in Congress, and the thugs in the streets, but at the National Zoo in Washington you will meet many delightful creatures, including Bao Bao, the 4-month-old panda cub.


On Monday zookeepers introduced Bao Bao to the public and the media, and the panda cub was a big hit.

The White House Press Secretary Jay Carney, even with his newly-grown beard, is no competition for the baby panda.  The journalists who covered the first public appearance of Bao Bao wouldn`t exchange places with their colleagues covering Carney`s daily press briefings.

Enjoy the antics of this delightful baby:
