Report and vocabulary
Fans of all things soft and cuddly queue up to hear the name of the latest addition to this US zoo's giant panda family.
In keeping with Chinese tradition, the naming ceremony happened as Bao Bao, which means 'precious baby', turned 100 days old.
Bao Bao herself was too busy snuggling up to mum in their den to see this special message from a famous panda-lover.
