Bao Bao, a giant panda born at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C., will be sent to China this winter under an agreement with the nation
Both of Bao Bao's parents are on loan to the U.S. from China, and the nations agreed that any pandas born to the couple would be sent to join the Chinese breeding program before they turn four years old. There are about 1,800 giant pandas in the wild, where they live solitarily, as all panda cubs do after they separate from their mothers between 18 months and two years old.
