Since the August arrival of the National Zoo's giant panda cub, Bao Bao, the Panda Cam-obsessed public has been desperately waiting for its chance to visit Washington's bouncing, black-and-white bundle of joy. Bao Bao - whose name, meaning "treasure," was selected by a public vote - is finally set to make her public debut on Jan. 18. No tickets will be required; visitors can see the littlest panda on a first-come, first-served basis. Members of Friends of the National Zoo will get a chance to see her a bit earlier, with exclusive access to the panda habitat Jan. 11-Jan. 17.
