Baby panda frolics with her mom during her outdoor debut

Posted: Updated:
The baby giant panda at The National Zoo in Washington D.C. made her outdoor debut this week.

Six-month-old Bao Bao frolicked with her mother Tuesday.  She strolled around the yard and even tried to scale the walls.

Zoo keepers cub-proofed the yard in anticipation of the baby panda's debut; tree limbs were trimmed and bales of hay were placed around the grotto for her safety.

Bao Bao has been somewhat of a star since her birth was broadcast live on the zoo's Panda Cam in August.
