Giant panda faked pregnancy for extra treats and air conditioning.

By Jessica Chasmar - The Washington Times - Wednesday, August 27, 2014
Giant panda Ai Hin may have pulled the ultimate diva move by faking her pregnancy in order to receive larger food rations and fancier living accommodations.

The planned first ever live-broadcast of a panda giving birth has been cancelled at the Chengdu Breeding Research Centre, in Chinas southwestern province of Sichuana.

Experts there say the 6-year-old Ai Hin showed signs of pregnancy last month, but her behaviors went back to normal as soon as she moved to a single room with air conditioning and round-the-clock care, The Telegraph reported.

Experts soon realized the panda was not pregnant.

They receive more buns, fruits and bamboo, so some clever pandas have used this to their advantage to improve their quality of life, said Wu Kongju, an employee at the panda base.

Many bears continue to display pregnant behavior after noticing the difference in treatment they receive. Giant pandas are notoriously reluctant to breed in captivity and pseudo-pregnancies are common, CNN reported.
