WASHINGTON - Giant panda cub Bao Bao has ventured outside for the first time.

Since her birth last summer, Bao Bao has been inside.

Keepers have cub-proofed the panda yards by putting collars on trees to keep Bao Bao from climbing too high.

Thay have also spread out bales of hay to cushion any falls Bao Bao may take.
