Panda Fakes Pregnancy to get better care by dailysikhupdates
The Chengdu Giant Panda Breeding Research Center in China recently had to call off a live broadcast that was to feature 6-year-old Ai Hin giving birth, because they discovered that she wasn’t actually pregnant.
First, let’s take a step back and take a very brief look at panda conservation:
Because of extensive habitat destruction, pollution, and poaching, pandas became endangered. The first conservation measures were taken in 1958, though it wasn’t until the 1990s that significant progress was made on that front. The more biologists learned about their reproductive habits, the more they learned that the Giant Panda was more like a Giant Pain.
