LANHAM, Md. (CBSDC) — The National Zoo has announced that its panda cub, Bao Bao, will be on public display starting Jan. 18.

“The amount of time Bao Bao and her mother Mei Xiang will be on exhibit each day will depend on the bears’ behavior,” according to a zoo news release. “In the first few weeks they may not be on exhibit for long periods of time; they will spend more time on exhibit as Bao Bao gets older.”

Bao Bao was born Aug. 23.
