National Zoo Panda
In this Nov. 29, 2013 photo provided by the Smithsonian National Zoo, a giant panda cub is measured as it is about to turn 100 days old, at the Smithsonian National Zoo in Washington. The National Zoo announced Sunday, Dec. 1, 2013 that it is naming its giant panda cub Bao Bao after receiving more than 123,000 votes from the public. The zoo asked the public to vote for one of five names. The others were Ling Hua, Long Yun, Mulan and Zhen Bao. The panda cub was born Aug. 23. She is only the second surviving panda cub born in Washington. (AP Photo/Smithsonian National Zoo, Abby Wood)
