PRC PANDA JIA JIA FOOLS ZOOKEEPERS, "PREGNANCY" WAS A FALSE ALARM

Despite promising initial signs, which seemed to suggest that the River Safari's female giant panda Jia Jia was pregnant, the giant pandas gifted to Singapore from the People's Republic of China will not be conceiving any cubs after all. Jia Jia underwent artificial insemination on 18th April after she was unsuccessful at mating with her male counterpart, Kai Kai. In July, she started displaying signs of pregnancy - for example, eating less bamboo, sleeping more and having elevated hormonal levels - which raised the hopes that Jia Jia had been successfully inseminated.

PANDAS KAI KAI & JIA JIA FINALLY HAVE SEX & LOSE THEIR VIRGINITY

Giant pandas Kai Kai and Jia Jia have officially crossed their first mating season, said Wildlife Reserves Singapore (WRS) in a media release on Tuesday (Apr 21). Both pandas were brought together for the first time in their dens for natural mating on the evening of Apr 17. The 40-minute session did not appear to be successful and, as such, a decision was made to carry out artificial insemination to increase Jia Jia’s chances of conceiving.

Day Trip to the River Safari

The River Safari is a river themed animal attraction where it houses the the Giant Pandas, Kai Kai and Jia Jai, and also giant fishes from all over the world such as the Mekong Giant Catfish, Piranhas and Manatees aka the mermaid. Since the attraction has not fully opened, only about two-third, we paid a discounted admission fee of $25 instead of $35 per adult. Free entry for Children below 3 years old. Even though its not fully open, there were still plenty to see and took us 3 hours to leisurely tour the whole place. And the best part is that everywhere is sheltered, except for the monkey attraction where the little squirrel monkeys were free to roam in an enclosed outdoor habitat. No sweat!
