First U.S. Panda pregnancy

The first insemination of a Giant Panda in the US this year occurred within the past couple of days at the San Diego Zoo. According to San Diego Zoo officials "Gao Gao" and "Bai Yun" mated yesterday and today after being observed yipping and displaying other courtship like behaviors. Researchers are sure this copulation was a success, with Bai Yun to give birth in late summer.

Congrats to the expectant parents, and the San Diego Zoo.
