Panda Baby Boom, In Part Thanks to “Panda Porn”

26 Oct 2010

Apparently, Chinese scientists have discovered a successful way to encourage poorer panda breeders to mate: showing “panda porn” to the uninitiated males. This suspect practice has now spread to zoos abroad.

Panda breeding is especially difficult because a female panda only has three days in a year in which she can become pregnant. China’s total number of births in captivity is at a record high this year, with 19 newborns. Currently, only about 1,600 pandas live in the wild.
