With her quarantine period being over, Bao Bao made her debut in China last night and her area is next to her brother's enclosure!

Mei Xiang has been artificially inseminated after she and Tian Tian failed to mate..hopefully another Panda baby in the future!

MeiXiang will not give birth this year. The giant panda team has been monitoring her hormones and behavior very closely during the past several weeks. Her hormones returned to baseline levels today, but she did not give birth, indicating that she was either experiencing a pseudopregnancy or did conceive but resorbed the embryo. #PandaStory http://s.si.edu/2eXRpvL

Smithsonian’s National Zoo and Conservation Biology Institute


A team of our reproductive scientists, veterinarians and panda keepers performed an artificial insemination on giant panda Mei Xiang today, March. 1. Scientists and keepers had been closely monitoring Mei Xiang’s behavior and hormones since she began displaying behavioral changes Feb. 17, indicating she was almost ready to breed. Daily hormone reports showed Mei Xiang’s estrogen levels peaked Feb. 28, which means she was ovulating and able to become pregnant. Female giant pandas are only in estrus or able to become pregnant, for 24 to 72 hours each year. Paws-crossed!
