Funi Experiences a Pseudo-pregnancy

Adelaide Zoo’s female Giant Panda, Funi, recently went through a pseudo-pregnancy, which saw her experience all the things she would if really pregnant. Symptoms included hormonal fluctuations, loss of appetite and prolonged episodes of sleep. This is very normal for female pandas to go through if they haven’t successfully mated during a breeding season. Senior Panda Keeper Simone Davey talks about Funi’s experience in this video blog.
