Visitors to the Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington, D.C., can finally get a glimpse of the panda cub Bao Bao. Bao Bao, whose name means "precious" or "treasure" in Mandarin, was born on Aug. 23, 2013 to the 15-year-old panda Mei Xiang. The cub is one of more than 300 pandas living in captivity worldwide, most of them in China. The only other zoo in the United States that currently has newborn pandas on exhibit is Zoo Atlanta, where female twins were born in July.
