WASHINGTON (AP) -- The National Zoo is preparing panda cub Bao Bao for her public debut this month.

Bao Bao had a tryout Monday in front of the media. She spent the morning climbing on rocks and following her mother, Mei Xiang , around the indoor exhibit.

Curators say Bao Bao has turned out to be a calm and relaxed panda cub, more subdued than older brother Tai Shan .

Bao Bao goes on display Jan. 18. Curators say she may be visible inside or outside, depending on the day.
