The National Zoo says giant panda cub Bao Bao could soon start venturing outside for the first time with her Mom.
The zoo says the cub will have access to Mei Xiang's yard this week starting each day about 8:00 a.m. Animal keepers have "cub-proofed" the panda yards. While Bow Bow will have the option of go outside, zookeepers say it could take several weeks before she is outside regularly.
