We can't take the cuteness!

Bao Bao the giant panda cub greeted the media for the very first time at the Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington DC, and the event was just as amazing as it sounded.

The little cub will be 5 months old on the 23rd of January and is almost 17 pounds which, according to zoo officials, is right on track to where she needs to be!

In the video, you can see the little panda lady learning how to climb. She takes a tumble or two - but don't worry - pandas have a lot of fur and are made to take those tumbles!

If she were in any pain - her momma Mei Xiang would help her right away.

Mei Xiang munched on some bamboo while Bao Bao strutted her stuff before going to take a nap.

The public are invited to take a look at this black and white cutie on January 18th, but until then we'll be watching this video on repeat!

Check out the video… AFTER THE JUMP!!!

National Zoo Bustling Around With Kori Bustard And Burrowing Owl Chicks

There's so many cutiez running around the Smithsonian National Zoo, we don't what to do!

Not only did the zoo welcome two DARLING Kori Bustard chicks to their family, they also said hello to two burrowing owl babes too!

Both groups of aDORable chicks will be making their summer debut in late August. The Kori Bustard chicks are currently being hand-reared to avoid conflict with other birds of prey.

The burrowing owl babies are little more mature but they're still pint sized compared to other birds.

Still, we wish we could take either species home to play with us!
