A four-month old furball has kept hard-nosed journalists in Washington captive, as Bei Bei the giant panda cub made his media debut at the National  Zoo.  

The cub was born in August to Mei Xiang, one of the top tourist draws in the US capital. A second cub born with Bei Bei died shortly after birth.  They were sired by Tian Tian, the zoo's male giant panda, using artificial insemination.  Their birth captured international attention.  

Giant pandas are among the world's most endangered species. Bei Bei will make his public debut next year on January 16th.
