Bei Bei was born Aug. 22, 2015, at the Smithsonian’s National Zoo’s David M. Rubenstein Family Giant Panda Habitat. Although the first 4 years of his life were spent at the Zoo, Bei Bei departed Washington D.C. for Chengdu, China on November 19th as part of the Zoo’s cooperative breeding agreement with the China Wildlife Conservation Association. The agreement states that all cubs born at the Zoo must move to China when they reach 4 years of age. Bei Bei turned 4 on Aug. 22.
