Panda Cub Ready to Greet His Fans

(YouTube Link

When we last checked in with Xiao Liwu, the panda cub at the San Diego Zoo, he was showing new dexterity during his 20th medical exam. Now the cub is six months old and allowed to roam his new outdoor zoo enclosure with his mother as he goes on public display today for the first time.

Xiao Liwu, whose name means "little gift" in Chinese, is shown here exploring his new surroundings as a crowd of photographers and videographers records the event. At one point, the cub approaches his mother and climbs up her back while she's eating. Instead of sharing her food, she promptly knocks him off. First rule of Panda Cub Club must be "Don't mess with Mama's food."
