Panda Pandering III

Unlike Panda couples in Washington DC and Atlanta, two Giant Pandas at the acclaimed San Diego Zoo successfully got it on...

The two giant pandas at the city's zoo retired to their favorite spot under a few bushes and mated over the past two days - the only successful natural insemination of a panda this year in the United States, officials said Saturday.

... Lindburg said Bai Yun had displayed signs of being receptive to mating in recent days, including yipping and raising her tail, walking through water and scraping pine tree bark onto her head and face.

"It's getting her perfume on for the date," Lindburg said."

"Somewhere between love and madness lies Calvin Klein's Pine Bark."

The pandas, both 13 years old, spent about 15 minutes mating in the same spot on Gao Gao's side of the exhibit where they mated in 2003.
At which point Gao Gao rolled over, switched on the TV and promptly fell asleep prompting Bai Yun to grab Buzz Bunny out of the nightstand drawer.

The recent amorous tendencies of the pair in San Diego are a relief for zoo officials who tried unsuccessfully from 1996 to 2002 to get Bai Yun to mate with Shi Shi, the zoo's first male.
Unfortunately, Shi Shi, then took up a career in the theater and moved to Greenwich Village.

Bai Yun and Gao Gao, uh, "frolicking."
Avert your eyes children!
