    Default Panda Fakes Pregnancy to Get Attention and Treats - LOL

    Panda Fakes Pregnancy, Broadcast of Birth Is Cancelled

    It's a plot plucked from a soap opera script.

    Displeased with her day-to-day life, Ai Hin concocts a plan to fake a pregnancy in a desperate plea for more attention and treats! (Bwahahahaha.)

    On Tuesday, experts at China's Chengdu Research Base of Giant Panda Breeding revealed that they caught on to Ai Hin the panda's scheme dun, dun, dun! and cancelled a live broadcast they were planning of the cub's birth, which would have been the world's first.

    According to AFP, the breeding center traditionally pampers pandas that could be pregnant. Benefits include single rooms with air conditioning and 24-hour care, plus an overabundance of goodies to eat.

    "They also receive more buns, fruits and bamboo, so some clever pandas have used this to their advantage to improve their quality of life," an expert at the base told state news agency Xinhua.

    They're calling Ai Hin's plot a "phantom pregnancy," and apparently it's common among endangered animals. The news agency said that before they determined the 6-year-old panda wasn't expecting, she had a reduced appetite, less mobility and a surge in hormones.

    Basically, this all sounds like daytime Emmy gold to us!

    ^^^^ So can dogs! My female puppy had a "hysterical pregnancy" before she was fixed. Though according to the vet, it isn't psychological (in dogs), just a weird hormonal thing after they go through a heat cycle. My dog even expelled milk.

    This is hilarious, though. Pandas are my favorite since I was a kid. Ai Hin's a clever bear!

    My friend works with pandas. I'm going to see what she says about this. I have a sneaking suspicion it's all bullshit. An animal can't fake a pregnancy, they can have a false pregnancy, but not a fake one.
