Video: Fuzzy Baby Panda Takes First Steps at San Diego Zoo
Ready for some cuteness? San Diego Zoo's fuzzy baby boy panda managed to take his first steps (or, maybe scoots) during his ninth veterinarian exam, and thankfully the squee-worthy moments were captured on video.

The cub, who we've seen get a little tickled during an earlier exam, is the sixth panda born at the San Diego Zoo and the third male. He was born July 29 to giant panda momma Bai Yun. The birth was a milestone, breaking the record for the most giant panda cubs born at a breeding facility outside of China.
