I went to China for holidays 2 years ago during my PhD. I travelled specially to Chengdu to visit the Giant Panda breeding program.
Panda are very shy and only reproduce once a year. They eat bamboo but don’t have the digestive system adapted. Therefore, without the help of humans, Giant pandas would have been extinct.
– If animal keepers bump into a couple panda during intercourse, pandas will stop and wait for another year … So shy!
