Sly Panda Fakes Pregnancy to Get More Food
Ai Hin, a giant panda in China, gave her caretakers at Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding a huge reason to celebrate when she showed signs of pregnancy. Her keepers planned to capture the special delivery with a live broadcast of her giving birth. The big event, though, has unfortunately been called off. The reason: Ai Hin was never actually pregnant.
Although the 6-year-old panda showed tell-tale pregnancy signs, like a decrease in appetite and an increase in progestational hormone, she was back to her old self in just two months. As an endangered species, pregnant pandas get A-list treatment. They're given private rooms with air conditioning, constant care and extra fruit, bamboo and buns. So Ai Hin may have faked having a bun in the oven to, well, get more buns. "Some clever pandas have used [faking pregnancy] to their advantage to improve their quality of life," Wu Kongju, a panda expert, told Xinhua, China's state news agency.
Ai Hin may have made headlines with her creative prank, but pseudo-pregnancies are common in pandas, which are known for not wanting to breed in captivity. Panda lovers may still have a reason to celebrate since Tian Tian, the panda in Edinburgh Zoo in Scotland, is believed to be pregnant. With these tricky bears, there are no guarantees, but data suggests she could give birth at the end of this month or in September.
