WASHINGTON, DC (WJLA/CNN) - People are lining up to see the new giant panda cub at Washington's National Zoo.
Five-month-old Bao Bao was born in August. She made her public debut this weekend, and the cold was not going to keep the panda fans away. They were bundled up and waited their turn to go inside.
The cub has rock star status and fame, something any politician would love to have in this town.
And there are cameras everywhere, with wowed young faces waiting to get a glimpse of the baby cuteness.
The Moyer family drove about three hours from Pennsylvania to see the cub.
"We frequent Philly's zoo a lot and this is something you just can't see there," Becky Moyer said.
"It's just so cute being able to see them move," Marlene Moyer said.
This weekend we saw a lazy Bao Bao. The 18-pound ball of fur had to be carried into the enclosure. Like her mom, a little cautious. And her like father, pretty laid back, especially after some tasty bamboo.
"Look at him. He's over there, see the little black spot," said Adelaide Flamer to her grandson. "We definitely wouldn't pass up the opportunity to see it."
She brought her grandson Tyre.
The 5 year old is visiting from Baltimore, and through his national geography, he's been learning all about pandas. "They've got sharp claws. They're black and white," he said.
