LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The National Zoo’s 3-month-old panda cub, Bao Bao, met a wolverine over the weekend.

Don’t worry, she’s OK.

The wolverine in question was Hugh Jackman, the actor who has portrayed the Marvel comic book character Wolverine several times on the big screen.

While the panda enclosure is still closed to the public, as it has been since before Bao Bao’s birth, Jackman was able to get a sneak peak of the cub and he posted photo evidence on his Instagram account.

The Australian actor was in town for TNT’s annual Christmas in Washington event, according to multiple reports.

Bao Bao will make her public debut for non-celebs next month, according to the zoo’s website.

In a blog post dated Dec. 6, zoo keepers said Bao Bao is still figuring out how to walk and move around well in her enclosure. She has also been observed “putting bamboo in her mouth in an exploratory sort of way,” but is not eating solid foods quite yet.
