A baby panda at the National Zoo in Washington, D.C. is trying to walk. This panda cam video shows the two-and-a half-month old female pulling her hind legs underneath her and trying to stand up. She didn't quite make it, though, and only managed to scoot a few feet. According to zookeepers, the panda now weighs more than 10 pounds. The zoo is running on an online contest to determine her name. The winning name will be announced on December 1st, when the cub is 100 days old.
