Giant Panda Ya Ya Gives Birth at Chengudu


The Chengdu Panda Research Centre is celebrating another birth. Ya Ya a 20 year old Giant Panda gave birth on the 10th of September 2010 to a female cub.

Ya Ya has given birth to 13 Cubs in 9 Litters of which 12 survived. She really is a super mum.

This year the pandas at Chengdu have given birth to 7 Panda Cubs, whilst last year they only gave birth to 4 cubs. Which the research centre said was due to the mothers being exhausted.

It is now reported that Chengdu now has 90 Giant Pandas housed there.

Once again well done to Ya Ya and all the staff at Chengdu.
