Bao Bao, the giant panda at the Smithsonian's National Zoo in Washington, DC, did not disappoint at her Chinese dumpling farewell party on Thursday morning.

As a crowd gathered outside her yard, Bao Bao, who will return to China on Tuesday, wandered about. She munched on bamboo and then napped on a tree trunk, leaving many to wonder how long the nap would last and when she would come and open a special food box, on the outside of which was drawn a jiaozi (Chinese dumpling).

The siesta lasted about 10 minutes. But before strolling toward the food box, she climbed a tree, sat near the top and relaxed before coming down 12 minutes later to get her special treat.
