Christmas is coming a few days early for panda lovers this year.
The San Diego Zoo's four-and-a-half-month old panda cub will make her first public appearance on Saturday morning.
Zoo officials say little Zhen Zhen (JUN JUN), or Precious, will be on view from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. daily. She'll spend more time in the open pen areas as her walking and climbing skills develop.
The cub has been secluded in a private den area with her mother, the panda Bai Yun (BYE' YOON), since she was born Aug. 3. Fans have
only been able to see her via the zoo's Webcam so far.
Zhen Zhen is the fourth panda cub born at the zoo.
