Remembering Ko Ko

Posted by Jeroen Jacobs | Date: 2011 09 09 | In: Kobe Oji Zoo


One year ago, Kobe Oji Zoo’s beloved male panda Ko Ko died of asphyxiation. Ko Ko failed to recover from a semen-extraction procedure conducted as part of a program to impregnate his partner, Tan Tan on September 9, 2010.

Panda fans in Japan still miss their panda friend and honoured him one year after his dead.
