WASHINGTON (AP) — Bao Bao the panda cub is ready for her public.

The National Zoo has extended its hours this weekend for the giant panda house as Bao Bao (bow bow) makes her public debut. Saturday is the first chance for the public to see the 5-month-old cub.

The zoo says the panda house will be open from 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Saturday, Sunday and Monday. Visitors will be allowed into the building in small groups to avoid overcrowding.

The zoo says the amount of time Bao Bao and panda mother Mei Xiang (may-shong) will be on exhibit each day depends on their behavior. They will have access to their private den, if they choose.
