The U.S.born giant panda, Bao Bao is now free to roam her new home in China after a month-long quarantine.

Bao Bao was born at the National Zoo in D.C. and returned to China as part of an international agreement.

Her handlers say she's had to adjust to some new food and a new language, but she was assigned a keeper who speaks both English and Mandarin to make her transition easier.

She will share her new playground with her brother Tai Shan, who relocated to China in 2010.
